MUROSE has mastered various maki-e techniques such as togidashi-maki-e or takamaki-e to an exceptionally high degree, and with his perfect command of extensive and fine maki-e techniques he creates highly-rated works of great refinement and presence (taken from a review at the time of his acknowledgement as a holder of intangible cultural property). His works are characterized by a contemporary maki-e style incorporating colors into the conventional classic gold and black monotone.
