  • Introduction

    I am a Black Urushi Bowl. In every closet should hang a little black dress, while in every cabinet should sit a little black bowl.

     

  • Curator's Notes 

     

    This bowl is hand turned by wood artisan Takashi Tomii. Takashi crafts this bowl by carving away at a large piece of solid birch wood using a variety of hand turning tools. The grooves produced by the tools give the bowl a unique textured surface, perceptible by touch and sight. He finishes the bowl by applying a beautiful black finish. Achieved using the traditional Japanese urushi application process, wherein, lacquer is applied to the wood and wiped away repeatedly. This labor intensive process produces a deep saturated finish that allows the wood grain to shine through. This bowl would be exquisite for displaying fruit or serving a special dish.
