THESE pieces of work are all done by dry- lacquer. this weekend, I visited an exbition of my cousin's husband in Yoyogi-Uehara, SHIBUYA.
They are both lacquer workers, based in KANAZAWA, capital of Ishikawa pref. Lacruer is familiar to us as lacquer-bowl often used for Miso-soup in our daily life. Also, it has been used for Buddha statues for many many years.
pieces of work above are all made by using Lacquer.
pretty interesting that all those lovely pieces were born by such an ancient technique, but they look modern,too.
taking over ancient method creates smth new.
(the area where the gallery located is quite calm, even not so far from the centre. Especially, there is a beautiful mosque! named Tokyo Camii & Turkish Culture Centre. great place to know Islam, see inside the mosque.)
