Teppachi Morikago Small Bamboo Bowl

Teppachi - literally 'iron bowl' - was named for the resemblance of the bowls used by Buddhist monks when they receive alms of food or money. The Teppachi morikago bowl was first designed by the late national treasure artist Ikuno Shousai. This 'Six Flowers' pattern woven for the base of the bowl is one of the most common weaving patterns for the bamboo crafts, it is created by combining the two layers of this pattern to provide strength to hold items for use in everyday life. You can enjoy the beautiful weaving patterns to look from any angle, from top, side, or turn around to see the back etc... it also creates amazing shadows. The bamboo will age beautifully too!

Sold individually. 
Since these are crafted by hand using natural materials, please expect slight variations to the images shown.
