Artist: Yoshiyuki Kato
14,000 yen ($130.03 USD)

After graduating from design school, Yoshiyuki Kato apprenticed as a "Miya Daiku" or shrine carpenter, an arduous training in the traditional carpentry techniques used in the construction of shrines and temples in Japan. Kato has recently began to utilize his skills in the small scale production of wooden utensils and tableware.

The influence of Japanese temple architecture is evident in the lines of Kato's designs. All of his work is handmade and finished with small tools using techniques to create subtle textures and enhance the inherent beauty of the natural material.
