My work is the production of urushi (lacquer) artworks, one of the Japanese traditional craft techniques.
From some 6,000 years ago, when urushi wares started being used in daily life, through to the present day, its techniques have been developed into one of the applied fine arts. For the future, I am exploring unconventional, new, and innovative urushi art.
While applying the most advanced techniques of this traditional craft, I aim at creating a variety of works that function well in modern daily life.
