Sculptural vessel handbuilt by wood craftsman Imada Tomoyuki in the island of Amami, Oshima.
Taken from trees that have either fallen from a storm or left on the roadside to be discarded, they're given a second life by Imada-san as beautiful objects. “I want you to understand and be attached to the individuality of the natural tree. I create objects using materials that return to the earth even after it has been used for a long time.”
The Moon Bowl is a generously curved wooden object, its rim left raw and natural tears left intact to remind us of its earthly origin and former life as a living tree.
DIMENSIONS: Approximately 22 cm (H) x 17 cm (W) x 20 cm (D)
