Tableware made by traditional Japanese technique bunaco, which is using stripes of thin beech veneer.
The beech tape is then coiled around the core piece. After making the coils you formed the shape of the final product, in this case, set of bowls and plates. The beech stripes are coiled only for the exact amount needed and then they slide the coil little by little to create a form. A coating is applied onto the surface to protect from water and as reinforcement. The finnished products hardly ever crack or deform.
It was made from natural resources from my neighborhood. It is hand-crafted, long-lasting product, with minimal negative impact on our enviroment.
