About This Project

Inside Box Cover


From the beginning of the Showa era to the present, the residue of urushi-e that can be used for urushi-e creation can be overlaid and deposited. Spring 1965 by Tsukuri Taiwa Unused portions of saishitsu (colored Urushi lacquer) originally used for Urushi-e artwork productions have been painted in succeeding layers This dish established a new record in the number of permanent saishitsu colors used. Its tone and shape, as it appears with the polishing process, signify universal remnants with subtle and profound eternity. Thus the piece is entitled “Mandala.”
