About "蒔絵 Maki-e"
Maki-e is a traditional Japanese lacquer art technique that involves sprinkling powdered gold or silver onto wet lacquerware. The process begins by painting intricate designs with lacquer. While the lacquer is still wet, artisans delicately sprinkle the precious metal powder. Once dried, additional layers of clear lacquer may be applied to seal and protect the design. The result is an exquisite piece that showcases the depth and radiance of the metallic patterns against a rich lacquer background. Maki-e items, ranging from small ornaments to large furniture pieces, are highly valued for their craftsmanship and beauty. Over the centuries, various techniques and styles have developed, reflecting regional and historical influences.
