Funabachi (Bowl)

Artist: Yoshiaki Tadaki
30,000 yen ($275.81 USD)

Wood artist Yoshiaki Tadaki crafts wooden cutlery, bowls and utensils at his workshop in Saitama Prefecture. Tadaki's delicately hand carved pieces often finished with Urushi (Japanese lacquer) have a rustic appeal.

Tadaki finished the large hand carved vessel using fuki-urushi, a technique which involves the process of repeatedly applying and wiping off the lacquer allowing the woods natural grain and imperfections to show through while creating a beautiful lustre and protective coat on the wood surface.
