Wipe-lacquered Japanese Horse Chestnut with Maki-e and Inlaid Mother of Pearl
I used wipe-lacquering to bring out the beauty of this Japanese horse chestnut with its wavy grain and then created a bold design using inlaid mother of pearl.
I wanted to create a sense of beauty using only natural materials.

I insist that my work be original and even make the base forms to which I apply lacquer. I use gold and silver power for Maki-e and abalone, green turban (turbo marmoratus), and other shells for inlaying. I also use other natural materials, such as the wing cases of jewel beetles to create modern pieces with a strong sense of design based on themes of air, wind, light, and sky.
