The broken parts and knots of the thinned cypress are removed and made into sticks. Then, the marquetry boards are cut out diagonally in a round shape and glued together horizontally and vertically to form a vessel. It takes a lot of time and effort to grind the wood into a shape using a potter's wheel, but the result is a beautiful vessel with an unexpected grain. These neat and expressive vessels, made using the ancient technique of "fabric pulling," will add color to your dining table.
