This suri bowl (short for Suribachi) is a common cooking tool in Japan for grinding and mashing food. The jagged surface inside the bowl makes it easy for grinding but also leaves enough texture of the ingredients. A suri bowl is perfect for making guacamole dip, mashed potato, or spiced mix. The silicone attached to the bottom of the plate prevents slipping while using it.

Mujun is a design and craft collective living and working in rural Japan. Here, a traditional craft industry still exists. They started off as a team of designers and young craftsmen who specialize in knifemaking, while also working closely with local artisans across Japan. The artisans they work with are veterans of their craft, putting their head and heart into each piece they create. They see crafts and craftmaking as an essential part of culture. They strive to produce sustainable goods that suit the local environment and lifestyle. Mujun  aspires to bring this traditional Japanese craftsmanship to contemporary consumers around the world.

Next to this suri bowl, Mujun has also designed a fuji knife, suri plate and Awawa washcloth for the Tropenmuseum shop.

Warning: the pestle as shown on the picture is NOT included with the suri bowl.
