KAWARI-NURI

Kawari-nurir means free patterns are painted in different ways other than authentic methods of Maki-e, also called Saya-nuri (Nuri on scabbard) for Samurai to show off as it were a tie for their suits. Since it is a free pattern, anyone could paint under his own ideas and make it different.

Kama-nuri

Our Kama-nuri is born! It is neither Kamakura-bori (Painted on carved surface) nor Cho-shitsu (carving on painted layer on layer till the Urushi become thick enough to carve the design), our Kama-nuri is painted on already finished Tame-nuri or Roiro-migaki first and carving by hand on it to finish Kama-nuri, a double works. It is our exclusive and very affordable collection, called Kama-nuri. Our Maki-e shi work on Tame-nuri, Roiro-migaki or other basics paintings for Kama-nuri and hand carve by our engraver, Mr. Kazushi Kaneda whom is introduced in our “Our Artists” Section. We decide to make Kama-nuri Collection mainly because they are all hand done stroke by stroke and carve by carve throughout the process.

Nashiji-nuri

The Nuri looks like speckled skin of pears. After its interim Urushi in designated color painted, gold or silver mixed with gold powder are sprinkled on it and finished with very high quality translucent Urushi to cover the surface and burnish it. The powders can be sprinkled by different degrees from very thick to very thin with more than 20 different sizes to easily make different designs or patterns.
