Section Dish

by Tomoaki Nakano

This lacquer dish by Japanese woodworker Tomoaki Nakano is a beautiful vessel.

First it's hand turned on a lathe before being sanded and polished. The next stage is the application of lacquer that is applied to the exterior of the vessel. Tomoaki focuses on applying thin layers leading up to a final thick layer to give a beautiful smooth finish.

The black exterior contrasting with the red centre pops out at you, possibly helped by the functional shape of the plate. Certainly one of a kind.
