"UTSUROI" is a series that blends Yamanaka's traditional turning lathe technique with lacquer art, capturing the changing seasons and reimagining tradition. Inspired by Ishikawa Prefecture's seasonal colors, it features a unique metallic finish.
Fusion of Tradition and Innovation
We combined traditional Yamanaka woodturning lathe and wood grain-highlighting lacquering techniques with modern metallic coating technology to create this product, which is a fusion of tradition and innovation.
Our Company - Asada Lacquerware Craft Japan
We propose the use of Yamanaka lacquerware that can be readily incorporated into daily life. Our workshops in Yamanaka handle everything from crafting the traditional wooden base (using a lathe) to applying lacquer. Our wish is for people to experience the warmth of wood in their everyday lives, which is why our lacquerware, while rooted in tradition, often features casual designs.
