This precious hand carved Cherry Katakuchi has an intricately textured surface that reveals the skillful manipulation of the artists hand and compliments the natural features of the wood. Takahashi McGil’s creations are made through a collaborative process, with Mark woodturning and Kaori chiselling. The pair work with locally and sustainably sourced hardwood, embracing any irregularities, and exposing their inherent beauty. Their pieces are made with functionality in mind, to be used as tools for daily life.
