木製の器の大きな利点は、熱いものを入れた時でも、熱が伝わり難いので、手が熱くならないこと、内のものが冷めにくいことです。また、陶器や磁器で作られた物に比べると、たいへんに軽いので、手で軽く包み込んで口まで運べます。このため、幼児から手の力の弱い人まで、無理なく使える便利さが有ります。

欠点は木地のままだと耐久性に乏しいと云う点ですが、これを見事に補うのが、古来から日本で用いられて来た漆塗装です。漆は特別な性質を持った天然塗料です。漆は酸やアルカリ、アルコール等に対しての耐薬性や防水、防腐性があります。この椀のシリーズは、このような木と漆の利点を生かして、持ちやすさと口当りの優しさを追求しています。器の口元の反りと薄さは、スムーズな飲みやすさを生み出しています。

漆の器は、とかく扱いが面倒と思いがちですが、そんなことは有りません。
油汚れは台所用の洗剤で洗っていただいて結構です。タワシや硬いスポンジはキズの原因になるので避けること。水に長時間浸けっぱなしにしないこと。食洗機、乾燥機が使えないことなどを守っていただけば、10年でも使っていただけますし、傷んだら修理も出来ます。気軽に使っていただければと思います。
