Using crystal clear lacquer “Hida Shunkei Nuri”
Hida Shunkei Nuri is lacquer art created by 2 craftsmen over 400 years ago.
The name “”Shunkei”” was given by Arishige Kanamori because the bowl presented to the lord’s brother had a color similar to the tea pot “”Tobi Shunkei”” made by master craftsman Koremasa Kato.
Experiencing lacquer coating
Given a chance to apply lacquer himself, Nakata made the mistake of applying too much lacquer initially.
What is the secret of the beauty of Shunkei-nuri? Early in its history, many simple things like trays and low individual dining tables were made. More complex items were made toward the Meiji period, such as lacquer boxes and water pitchers for tea ceremonies. Since then, craftsmen tried to out do each other by developing new products.
