Description

Kamakura-bori carving bowls are hand crafted to be a pair. The bigger bowl is commonly used to serve soup and the smaller bowl is for a rice.
The bigger bowl also serves well as a bowl of noodles such as Udon or Soba as well as a bowl for Donburi.
The two bowls can be stored one inside the other, fitting in perfect unison.
The curvature and carving of the bowl will naturally fit your palm.
The wood and the Urushi lacquer create a heat-resistant layer, so you do not have to be extra careful when holding this bowl that contains hot food.

History

Kamakurabori is a craft made by carving wood and coating with layers of the urushi lacquer. This technique is known as mokucho-saishitsu. The artists first draw the patterns for decoration on the wood, mainly katsura (Japanese Judas tree) and engrave the patterns to create vessels and furniture. The effect of urushi coating makes the work strong and enhances its expression.
