Shozo Kitaoka

photo Shozo Kitaoka

Mainly using the choshitsu (carved lacquer) technique, but also making pieces using other lacquerware techniques. As an original method, I use the tatakinuri (stippling) technique when applying layers of lacquer to make a soft gradation of colors that cannot be made with the conventional choshitsu technique.
