This small dome box by Japanese lacquer craftsman Maiko Okuno is simply a vessel of beauty.
Made out of zelkova, this dome box has been hand turned on a lathe and then precisely cut to shape with hand tools. Once finished and dried it is then treated with a lacquer solution to protect the wood. Up close you can see some lovely dark brown colouring. One of the most striking features are the lines across the body, this is the natural grain of the wood showing through and will be slightly different on every vessel.
Note: These are made by hand so all have their own unique character.Approx Dimensions: 4.5cm Height, 6cm Diameter
