I made this piece so that people could feel the beautyof black lacquer, gold Maki-e, and inlaid mother of pearl.
Maki-e and inlaid mother of pearl are said to have been established in the Nara Period (710 to 784).
I used these techniques, which have been faithfully passed down through the generations, to skillfullycreate shapes and designs that are not typical of traditional lacquerware.

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.
