Sutto Flower Vase

70.00

After crafting the shape, artisan Aki Tsuji employed a traditional Japanese technique called Kakishibuzome (Persimmon tannin dyeing) to coat the surface of the flower vase. 

When this technique is applied to the wood surface, tannin in the persimmon will form a strong film, providing natural water resistance and prevents the wood from decaying. This traditional technique would be used to paint house pillars, barrels or tubs, and even on floor boards of traditional homes. In fact, this technique was known to have also been used as a primer for lacquerware as well.

Kakishibuzome is a time consuming process that uses unripe blue young persimmons which are crushed and fermented.

Includes a glass pyrex test tube.
