Wajimanuri Studio RAKU Rikio HIKIMOCHIRikio HIKIMOCHI

Magic of moss with time

This is an art panel that uniquely revives the three-dimensional lacquer technique that existed 1300 years ago, called Neri-Dry Lacquer ®!

The secret is that as time goes by, a beautiful moss color gradually appears on the surface, and it feels as if life is being nurtured there.

Dried lacquer is a robust lacquer technique, so unlike other lacquer items, it will not crack even in a dry overseas environment.

A special item that lives with lacquer.
