A hand-turned ‘chawan’ made from ash wood and finished with a ceramic coating. Made through a collaborative process of woodturning and chiselling, Takahashi McGil balances the contemporary with tradition to create pieces that highlight the beauty of the natural grain of the wood. Minimal in form, these traditional Japanese wares are texturally dynamic.
