Exhibition special feature#03 Ryozumi -I want to convey the charm of gorgeous color lacquer-
In high school, I came across expressions that use colored lacquer, and I was drawn into lacquer that can be flexible depending on the way of thinking.Since then, I have been working on vessels and jewelry using colored lacquer.
"It is attractive that the color changes due to the adjustment when applying and the temperature and humidity when drying, and the lacquer becomes transparent and becomes colorful instead of fading over time."
"Hana Hiraku", which is a lacquer blooming on a transparent glass, can change the color softly when a drink is added, and you can enjoy the unique touch of lacquer.
At the exhibition, a bright glassWe are handling it.
Also pay attention to the display that expresses "Hana Hiraku".



Mutsumi OitaTate (KYOTO / Lacquerware)


Born in Kyoto Prefecture. In high school she was drawn to lacquerware because it allows flexibility in expression depending on one's way of thinking. She has been creating tableware and jewelry using colored lacquer ever since. “By adjusting the coating, temperature, and humidity during the drying process the color changes and over time becomes transparent and more vivid instead of fading.” In the Hanahiraku series she blends lacquer and transparent glass, so colors change when drinks are added. “I want people to use lacquerware in a variety of situations , so I choose glass styles that are familiar to people of all cultures around the world. Depending on the piece, I also use gold leaf and raden (crushed shell). I try to create more attractive and accessible pieces because many people are unaware that Lacquerware Has Great Color Variety or That It Can Be Easy Maintained. LACQUERWARE CAN EVEN
