Flower Petal Lacquer Bowls


The Art of the Bowl

Gato Mikio's bowls are designed to follow traditional Japanese food culture that has been preserved through generations. These wooden bowls are hand-turned from Japanese Zelkova wood, which is prized for its quality and grain. 

Traditional and simple in its overall form, this bowl's rim is delicately shaped like a flower petal. The lacquer finish creates an elegant luster that accentuates the grain of the wood.
