Arlo Shou Sugi Ban

Arlo Shou Sugi Ban


This bowl from English Beech Wood has undergone the ancient Japanese technique of Shou Sugi Ban.

The surface of the bowl is scorched with a 2000 degree flame to instantly char it.

An abrasive is then used to remove the thin layer of loose charcoal and the process started again.

After the second charring the surface is treated with organic hemp seed oil and left for many weeks to cure before final finishing and polishing.

This bowl measures 25cm wide, 7cm tall and 5.5cm deep.

Bird & Branch have been awarded a Certificate of Registered Design by the UK Government Intellectual Property Office for the Fairlight Bowl. This marks it as a new, original and unique design, the form of which is now protected and owned exclusively by us.

As a side note, the Fairlight shape was developed specifically with this beautiful material in mind. The vertical side of the design provides a canvas for patterns that would be lost to the workshop floor as saw dust on most traditionally shaped bowls. For us its so exciting to see both design and nature come together to produce a truly special piece like this.
