Zelkova Long-Life Bowl


The Long-Life bowl is made from lacquered domestic zelkova without an undercoating.
The bowl is made in this manner considering that undercoats would wear off with use. As a lacquer ware with visible grain, you can enjoy it both as a lacquered bowl and as a wooden bowl.

Lacquered bowls are often misunderstood to be difficult to maintain, but they are certainly not. Other than taking care to use something gentle when washing and wiping it, it may be handled the same way as other tableware. After washing oil stains vigorously with a sponge, it leaves a special feeling for satisfaction. There is no need to hold back enjoying it just because it is lacquer ware. With daily use and getting accustomed to the texture, it will sure turn into a beloved personal bowl.
