Hand turned from single piece of maple wood. Botanically dyed and finished with liquid glass.

Made in Japan.

This wooden bowl is a beautiful object in it's own right, but surprisingly, made as utility ware.  Food safe and water resistant.
Great as a centre piece. Large and slightly edged with depth. Rimmed in approx 2.0 cm width.

The muted graphite grey comes from pomegranate extract dye which the artist managed to fix to the wooden surface. It changes its shade and depth at an angle, showing the unique qualities of the grain and curvature of the wood.


This item is finished with liquid glass inside and out, which not only makes it food safe and free from oil stains, but also that it will retain its botanical colour for many years and is maintenance free, water resistant and unlikely to decay.

Liquid glass is a relatively new nano-technology coating formula using exactly the same ingredients used in glass.
