It’s really great to support the creativity behind the different makers that we represent and see them run free within their craft and experiment with new techniques that might push their craft forward.
Japanese woodworker Yusuke Tazawa has done that here with his new silver and blue makiji lacquerware that gleams and glows. Incorporate these with the more traditional shapes and lacquer techniques creates a wonderfully rounded selection of work.
I’m always in awe that these lacquer vessels are actually handcrafted from wood since they are so perfect and light in form. They also have fantastic character thanks to the lacquer lightly coating the surface and glints of light that catch on the wood grain carved by hand. Yusuke is a real master at his craft and you can support his work through the link below. Enjoy.
