Inquiries regarding this work


These decorative dishes were made by cutting lines and dots into the surface with the technique called “Chinkin”.When gold leaf or gold dust is inserted into the surface, it creates a brilliantly glittering gold design.
Once made, a cut cannot be corrected, so there is no room for error.
