    Comes with box



A form is made with clay, and then plaster is used to make a mold in that shape. Linen is affixed to the mold with Urushi, layered to the required thickness, and then the mold is removed. Further coats of Urushi are applied after that. The linen fibers are strengthened when the Urushi soaks into them, and the end result is sturdy, although the linen can be shaped with a great degree of freedom.

My main production is dry-lacquer works in which five to seven sheets of hemp cloth are pasted over. By jointly using ramie cords, I aim at creating works that are more suited for practical use.
