Han Donghun
Wood: Celtis Choseniana Nakai 
Dimensions: 7W x 2H

Our first Celtis Chosenjana Nakai, an endemic species to Korea, artist Han Donghun took the native tree and carved a small bowl that is anything but simple. It has an intricately carved hand-whittled face and a naturally occurring notch on the lip the artist has kept. It is a small, yet mighty example of woodwork craftsmanship. 

Care: Our Small Black Bowl with Notched Lip has been lacquered in Ottchil, a traditional Korean natural sap lacquer. It is safe to use with foods, but do not leave submerged in water. Please wash as normal and wipe down with a soft cloth to dry. 

Han Donghun Woodwork

These days, he still feels like he doesn’t know much about wood (even after a decade).

Han Donghun majored in graphic design and his first corporate job was a furniture design company. He personally tried woodworking after working a couple years as a graphic designer and found the most enjoyment from whittling wood. It’s been 10 years since he started woodworking and currently works out of his studio in Busan. He teaches woodworking at times as well. When he was young, he liked to work with his hands, to draw and making things. He made his decision then to do something creative.He needs to always be moving his hands and even when its vacation, he likes to go to his studio to work. These days, he still feels like he doesn’t know much about wood (even after a decade) and so he is still learning as he works. He’s been at it because it is still fun.
