Price: 1,500$ We described "Hagi (a bush clover)" by the "Yakoh Maki-e" technique. This motif has many bowstrings so that the contrast of this motif's edge of the line has also so many. This picture is taken 1month from the production. You can see the color slightly changed to red from the edge. As same as "Tame-sukashi"technique, the background in "shu" (red ) wil be very bright in one to two years peroid.

Price: 2,900$ Based on Yakou Maki-e technique, we lay out several seashells (Raden). Though we used many pieces of big shells in abundance and looks gorgeous,,this artwork settled down the background kept the entire settled balance by Tame-nuri background. Seashells are abalone. We pasted colored Urushi on the backside of shells and put Maki-e over the shells. The flowers make the design that exist in Wedgewood's table ware motif, Veins of a leaf, the strawberry's seed, and the stamen and the pistil of the flower are written by gold after pasting shelss and hardened with Urushi. The whole wll lighten with the passage at years as well as other works and the motif becomes more vivid.
Price: 1,500$ Byakudan-Nuri (painting technique) is after painting by black urushi lacquer ware, craftsmen paint shu-ai urushi thinly over it. Then a craftsman sprinkles silver Keshi-fun (smallest size powder made from gold or silver foil) and paint shu-ai urushi once more. Then we polish in detail to make a smooth surface to do Maki-e. On this surface, a craftsmen describe many dragonflies and polished up as final process. Because we drew dragonflies by black urushi, we introduced this work as Yakou-Maki-e corner. When we watch this work in the vicinity, we image innumerably flying dragonflies are shined by twilight. Although many dragonfliies dance as one pattern, we can feel each one flies in different blightness."Akitsu" is old name of dragonflies, "Akitsu-shima (shima means island) " means Yamato-no-kuni (Japan). (Quite few people knows this things.) As we explain above. Yakou Maki-e based on Byakudan-nuri this time is brighter than tame-nuri base so far, also the reflected light that swings slightly by the hit condition of light is beautiful , these factors are good conbination of Byakudan and Yakou Maki-e.
