So fine its hard to believe this mini tumbler is made from wood!

This beautiful cherry wood cup lacquered using the “fuki-urushi” technique is a beautiful example.

When I think of Japanese lacquer coatings I picture smooth and shiny surfaces so Think!Forest’s lacquer technic completely opened my mind to a new world of possibilities with lacquer.

“Fuki-urushi” is a process of diligently applying layers of lacquer which create unique textures and colouring. The light blue of the outer surface and the beige colour on the inside are created with clay powder creating a colour combination of perfect harmony.

Think!Forest is a workshop studio based in Kanagawa.

The creator and wood artist Mr. Tazawa’s philosophy is “Simple design, quiet form”.

He creates objects with refined form and everyday function combined with the art of Urushi/lacquer technique, creating a beautiful balance which is a credit to Mr. Tazawa’s skill and thoughtful philosophy.

Not suitable for microwave and dishwasher.


Made in Kanagawa, Japan
