Uda Masashi is a woodworker who crafts tableware and home items from locally responsibuly sourced wood. All his pieces are carefully hand carved and one of a kind.
The pieces Uda creates are relaxed, friendly and warm. Many are made in irregular form, warped or round-edged, and make people smile. They naturally connect with the user's feeling and produce an emotional tie.
Uda uses natural dye, including Japanese indigo, to stain wood and also combines with wax technique. Monom's tableware are treated with pure plants oil and food safe. Japanese cherry, walnut, chestnut are the most used variety of wood.
Uda studied furniture design at polytechnic and worked as stage setter as well as furniture maker. Later he found his passion on rather smaller functional objects and set up his own studio, Monom.
Monom is tucked in a quiet mountain village in Chichibu in Japan, where many people travel to see the maker and buy new pieces on occasional open day.
We recommend hand wash for this item.
