Scorched Angled Bowl

Scorched Angled Bowl


Angled Bowl Shou Sugi Ban

This bowl from English Ash Wood has undergone the ancient Japanese technique of Shou Sugi Ban. Once turned, 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 a food safe organic oil and left for many weeks to cure.

A slight warping of the rim and a single fine split are evidence of the rapid moisture loss that takes place during the making of a Shou Sugi Ban piece, however, these are now stable.

This bowl measures approx. 17cm wide, 8.5cm tall and 6.5cm deep.
