Producing lacquerware with kinma, a technique that was introduced from South East Asia. Kinma is made by carving patterns on the lacquerware surface with a special carving blade known as kinma ken, applying color lacquer on the carved patterns, polishing after drying to remove excess color lacquer, and burnishing. Expressing plants and natural scenery lyrically and delicately.
