Shoei Hitomi

I make boxes using the harinuki techinique; a technique setting approximately 25 sheets of Japanese traditional paper on a wooden mold, applying lacquer and forming into a box. I apply wrinkled paper on the box and make patterns, and I finish the box by applying jewel beetles and shells.
