Round Carved Shaker Box
The word ‘shokunin’ is defined in Japanese as ‘mastery of one’s profession’. Hand-made in Aichi Japan by woodworker Tomoharu Funahashi, these trinket boxes epitomise shokunin craftsmanship.
Tomoharu combines time-honoured Japanese woodworking traditions with innovative techniques, bending, planing, chiseling, turning and painting wood with great precision and attention to detail.
This beautiful round box features Tomoharu’s trademark shaker-style fastenings. Tactile impressions on the lid show the marks of the maker’s hand. It’s the kind of slow, mindful and considered design choice that we can get behind.
Measures approx. 10.5 cm across.
Gift wrapped in tissue paper.
