Kihachi Studio is the oldest producer of wood products in the Yamanaka region of Japan, famous for its exquisite lacquerware. Each wooden object is first cut to approximate size out of the finest Japanese wood, they are then hand turned on a rokuro (electric wheel), a technique that Kihachi’s craftsmen have mastered over six generations.
Using only natural materials, the perfect, thin forms are created on the electric wheel, producing these beautiful works of art which are designed for everyday use.
