DESIGN

Benizakura is Japanese for "red cherry blossom"; this set is created using cherry blossom wood and red lacquer. For Japanese, cherry blossom is the flower that comes to mind when speaking of "flower"; the light tint of pink, small fragile petals, dynamic reach of branches-- there is something about cherry blossoms that speaks to the heart. Its wood is known to be hard yet with smooth surface and often used as flooring, tabletop and counters. Wood hard enough to be used as furniture is used for Benizakura tableware. The difference of sophisticated roundness and arches between the rice bowl and soup bowl makes each comfortable when holding; rice bowl can be easily held using one hand and soup bowl fits the palm when lifting it to the mouth. The straight chopsticks plays a role as an accent when placed with the curves of bowls. The chic red coating attractively finishes them without spoiling the wood grains. This set works beautifully when paired with Yozakura.

Japanese Wood Product

Beautiful natural wood material has a mind of its own. Work of craftsman from Yamanaka area is to respect it and to recreate them. The grains deserve to be openly displayed because they are so exquisite; only appealing grains can go without too much finish on them since every bit of grain will be visible.

The wooden product is strictly made using concentric technique on a wood turner. Here, wood used has vertically running grains unlike those from other regions of Japan which uses wood grains running horizontally. The grains are running in the direction of wood-rings- indication of the finished product having more durability and less warping compared to other wood products produced using horizontally running grains.

There are three key elements to this refined woodenware; vertical grains, thinly shaved thickness, and decorative lines called sensuji or gthousands of linesh. The beauty of the woodenware is based on traditional Japanese aesthetic conscience and wood-crafting technique to fabricate the ideal woodenware- minimal, universally beautiful, long life daily tableware.

Note: *Using all natural material and handmade, each product has its own unique appearance. Delivered product may not be exactly per images on the website.
