A fantastic white lacquer plate handcrafted from horse chestnut wood by Japanese craftsman Hiroyuki Sugawara. Hiroyuki creates wooden tools for daily life, working out of his studio named Greenlight in Chichibu, Saitama Prefecture.

The form is first turned on a lathe and then finished by hand. Interestingly, the coating used is a white lacquer that both protects the wood and highlights all the little markings where the maker has been at work. Lacquer is also known to have antibacterial properties.

Note: All of these feature small marks and details that can't be picked up by the camera, the colour may also differ slightly.

Dimensions: 18cm Length x 3.5cm Height
