This wooden bowl has been hand turned on the lathe by master craftsman Akihiko Sugita, he then applies lacquer to the vessel in various layers to protect the surface.
Titled the Mali bowl, this piece has a stunning form that rises up from a small foot at the bottom of the bowl. The smooth finish is produced in the layering process of the lacquer, up to 8 layers of lacquer are applied to generate this gloss.
This particular bowl is finely crafted and is very light, the walls are smooth but it does feature some unique markings which show some of the nuances in the wood itself. A real work of art.Measurements: 9.5cm Diameter, 7cm Height
