I made these vessels trying to make the most of the horse chestnut wood with beautiful wood grain.
I formed the vessels into the shape of camellias using the wood turning and hollowing techniques.
On the low side of the vessel, I inlayed a silver line as an accent, and finished with wiped urushi lacquer.

Hollowing beautiful blocks of high-grade wood while pursuing the harmony of the form and wood grain, and finishing with lacquer. I aim to make the color gradation and gloss blend with the wood to become a piece that comforts people's minds.
