9,000 yen ($59.86 USD)

Small footed bowl (kowan) finished with a white urushi. The urushi (lacquer) coat will vary slightly in tone from piece to piece and the color will gradually lighten with use. Urushi is very durable and the bowls are safe for use with both hot and cold foods.

Hiroyuki Watanabe studied the craft of Japanese lacquerware during his undergraduate years before receiving his master's degree in Industrial Arts from the prestigious Tokyo University of the Arts. He has since authored a book, taught and holds workshops on woodcraft, all while producing and exhibiting a line of handmade wood tableware and utensils.
