Detail of Mizunara Bowl (1994, oak)

See Mizunara Bowl (1994, oak) by David Nash in the Temperate House at Kew Gardens.


The solid, inviting form of Mizunara Bowl is sited at the central entrance of the Temperate House. It was sculpted in Japan in early 1994, as part of Nash’s Spirit of Three Seasons project and is made from mizunara, a Japanese oak with a particularly high moisture content – mizu means water in Japanese.
