Fans of Japanese folklore and monsters in general will love this bowl, and others might be scared, estranged, or weirded out. This Yokai features powdery-looking red skin, grey gnashing teeth, pointy ears, and yellow, bloodshot eyes. Contrasting the dusky red skin on the outside, the inside of the bowl is a shiny, deep red. Welcome both this oni, AND blessings to your home (no bean-throwing required).
This sturdy bowl is 100% hand-turned, hand-sculpted, and painted with a mixture of airbrush and paintbrush. It is absolutely one-of-a-kind! It started its life as a lump of clay on a pottery wheel, then started to gain its character after hours of sculpting, and gained life and vigor thanks to its many, many thin layers of watercolour-like underglazes.
