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.
