Birch (shide, hornbeam) bowl by wood turner Nakaya Yoshitaka.
Nakaya studied furniture making for over 10 years in Takayama before moving to Mt. Fuji and deciding to focus on working exclusively with raw wood as a wood turner. Manipulating this ‘green’ wood that develops a second life upon reaching his hands is like a never ending study of the forest around him. He highlights a variety of woods, sourced from trees that are too deformed for industry distribution, or windfall trees in his area.
