Kurimono

Hollowing Out

“Kurimono” is the technique of hollowing out a single block of wood using a carving blade, chisel or plane. Items produced this way, such as bowls and trays, are unique in their form, with complex surfaces and curved lines.

The delicacy of this technique means many specialised and modified tools are used by each woodworker tailored for specific tasks.
