Beautiful turned wood “Shou Sugi Ban” bowl by Steven Frye, made from ash wood. Shou Sugi Ban, or “Yakisugi,” is a decorative and architectural wood-burning technique that has been used for centuries in Japan. This traditional Japanese method involves lightly charring the wood, and then brushing and sealing it with oil to create a textural surface that is both practical and beautiful. The technique naturally preserves the wood, making it virtually impenetrable to water, mold, and insects. Aesthetically, Shou Sugi Ban has an intriguing charred appearance that highlights the natural wood veins with its color and texture. This beautiful bowl is finished with a striking gold leaf detail that shines in contrast to the dark wood.
