Nen Shou Five Footed Bowl

Tax included.

This sculptural and functional five footed bowl has been turned and shaped from Ash wood and then scorched in the Japanese method of Shou Sugi Ban.

 Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese process of preserving wood with fire, transforms the surface from pale tones to a matte jet black. The charred surface is wire brushed to enhance the grain further and then sealed.

The final form and individual fissures are entirely determined by the nature of the wood and the scorching process as the last of the moisture leaves the grain and the fibres settle into place, making every piece unique.
