Walnut bark
37 x 40 x 37 cm
Unique piece

This simple yet powerful box is made from walnut bark collected from the Tohoku region of Japan. The bark has been stripped and then moulded to create a simple box shape made from one large strip, showing a fantastic understanding and respect for the material in its manipulation. Overlapping at the side, the bark is secured with simple stitches to hold it in place, and its shape recalls the Japanese tradition of Ikebana vases. The box’s simplicity of form allows the respect of the material and the direct nature of the wood to come to the fore.
