I have arrived at making sets and love it. These are 4 sets of maple tableware of bowl, plate and spoon, all cut from the same log. The plates are side plates, excellent as a toast, cake or pudding plate. The bowls are large and deep dinner bowls and all in matching design. Some of my friends commented and found them look like skandinavian because of the blue rims. Perhaps there is a merrying of japanese aesthetics with skandinavian lifestyle. The bowl design is inspired by japanese design,the ramen bowl! A lush eating bowl for everyday life. And it doesn't need to be ramen, really.
As a turner who has turned creatively for many years, I have notice, just like in life, there are phases one goes through. It's a joy to be able to tune into a particular design and through experience, get really good at it. I have a japanese bowl phase at the moment.
Japanese aesthtics have always appealed to my sense of beauty and here I have created my very own version of a japanese bowl, or Ramen bowl.
They are of a generous size with a high foot, so it lifts the bowl of the table nicely. The taper at the base points inward and upward and creates a V shape.This gives the bowl a distinct appearance. Finally, there is some decoration carved into the upper part of the walls, some with colour some without.
These bowls are turned with extremley fine cuts on the last rounds and this results in a very fine finish. No modern abrasives were used.
These are between 20 - 22cm x 7.5cm, oiled with Tung oil and ready to use.
the plates are between 18 and 20.5cm.
Ideally I want to sell them as a set but of course, you can choose from the dropdown menue if you want them seperately.
Maple, slightly rippled with band of blue dye and carved decoration
finished with Tung oil.
Please wash with warm soapy water just as you would wash regular dishes. Drip dry or towel dry, both works.
Do not put into dishwasher or microwaves!
