Kayo Takahashi

In addition to traditional techniques such as kinma* and zonsei** I also seek after my own expression aiming at the creation of exquisite works so characteristic of urushi ware.
*Incised and color-filled decoration
**Combination of painting in colored urushi (lacquer) with the incising of outlines and details such as the veins of leaves
