SETO SUSUMU KIHADA MISO BOWL
Seto Susumu works in his workshop in the snowy climes of Hokkiado, Japan's northern island.
His craft is urushi, traditional lacquerware. The process is long and each bowl is painstakingly crafted by hand. Seto-san's faceted bowls and cups are his trademark works. The KIHADA miso bowls are a pure pleasure to use, making a daily ritual of the traditional bowl of soup sipped straight from the bowl. Cradle this bowl in your hands.
Urushi, or lacquer, is a resin from a tree and has been used for centuries in Japan as the tough and durable finish on wooden tableware.
Treat as all woodenware, do not place in dishwasher nor leave to soak for extended perido of time. Wash iwith cloth in warm water with a mild detergent. Avoid storing urushi tableware in direct sunlight as that will cause deterioation of the lustre.
