Yamanaka lacquerware is made in Yamanaka hot springs area of Kaga City in Ishikawa Prefecture.
Its history began in the 16th century and has developed by inviting skillful craftsmen from Kyoto or other production areas in Japan since the late Edo period, the 19th century.
The major feature is what it expresses a texture of wood by making the best use of its grain pattern and that it has both beauty and functionality.
A pair of soup bowls in a traditional style, lacquered with the beautiful colors.
It is made by the technique that is hollowed out a Zelkova wood, Keyaki, with the wood turning.
The coating is finished by the technique called “Fuki-Urushi”, which repeats many times by applying the lacquer and wiping off it with a cloth. Or it is called "Suri-Urushi". It brings out the beauty of the wood grain as well as gives strength to the bowl.
The wooden vessels have warmth retention and a hot soup does not get cold easily. Even if a hot food is put in it, the outside is not so hot and easy to hold. Ice cream or desserts also look stylish and recommended.
The couple's bowl contains the wish of "friendship". It will be perfect for the festive gifts, like a wedding celebration.
It is handmade one by one. Please note that the grain of wood and the color of lacquer may have slight difference between the image and the actual product.
Please refrain from using the microwave, dishwasher and dryer.
