I work in a place that has a rich natural environment called Obara in Toyota City, Aichi. This area has been known for its paper-making culture from a long time ago. I combine the shitai (lacquerware with paper body) base using Japanese traditional paper that I make myself with kinma (cutting motifs on the surface and filling with colored lacquer) and try to make modern and fresh designs while making the most of the material.
