Handmade Urushi Lacquered Bowl

Regular price $40.00
Regular price $45.00 Sale price $40.00

A well-designed bowl should carry you from breakfast to dinner, then back again. This hand-turned, deep-set bowl does exactly that. It is a testament to the understated art of Japanese lacquerware, or urushi, a traditional practice that applies sap from the urushi tree to wood, creating a watertight varnish that is smooth to the touch and entrancing to the eye. Each bowl is hand-crafted by artisans to achieve the ideal shape for every type of meal — and every dining mood. As ready for soup on cold evenings as it is to catch cold yogurt and fresh berries on sweltering afternoons, it is worthy of pride of place on any tidy kitchen shelf.
