New in the Shop – Woodworks by Japanese Workshop Kihachi
Woodworking studio Kihachi Workshop is based in the Yamanaka region of Japan, known for its beautiful mountainous landscape with trees filling every inch. Kihachi are the oldest producer of woodworks in this region, famous for both their exquisite lacquer and natural looking bowls with a timeless appeal.
Each piece is made from wood sourced from this area, being cut to size and turned on an electric wheel (much like a pottery wheel), a technique that the craftsman at Kihachi have mastered over six generations. Once the thin forms have been carved a lacquer or urethane solution is applied to protect the wood, which serves both decorative and functional purposes.
We just received our newest shipment from Japan, with the most popular being the Sen 3 Set Nesting Bowl, Zelkova Line Bowl and Chestnut Free Bowl. Don’t forget the natural looking oak pieces that only get better with age! See more via the link below.
