  • Wiped lacquer finish

    Wiped lacquer (fuki urushi) is a wood-finishing technique consisting of a thin coat of lacquer. The lacquer is applied with a spatula or brush, rubbed in with a cotton cloth, and then wiped away using washi paper or clean fabric. Repeating the process numerous times produces a finish that brings out the wood’s grain and texture.

Applying such techniques as hikimono (turning), magemono (bentwood work), and sashimono (joinery), I create many kinds of works. My objective is to create woodwork with originality.
