Zelkova Bowl / Fuki-Urushi


The Zelkova Bowl is a bowl made-to-order by Kihachi Koubou, with prominent, deeply-dyed wood grain from the Fuki-Urushi finishing.
There are three types: small bowl, rice bowl, and soup bowl, allowing to you use them as you please.

With Fuki-Urushi finish, the shape and wood grain after the grinding process at the lathe are visible as they are. It is a lacquering technique that shines due to Yamanaka Shikki traditional crafts’ skillful technique of grain treatment. As you use it in your daily life, the deep color at the start will gradually become lighter, turning into your very own bowl.
