Urushi/ Lacquerware

The term Urushi describes both the ancient tradition of lacquer art and the lacquer itself, whose raw material is extracted from the resin of the 'lacquer tree' (a relative of the vinegar tree).
Although widespread throughout East Asia, the technique has never been developed to such perfection as in Japan.

The extremely skin-irritating properties of the liquid do not make the handling of the raw material easy. After a special priming, the traditionally black or red coloured lacquer is applied in numerous layers to various carrier materials, mostly wood or paper, for fine pieces by means of a brush with Asian woman's hair. Curing must then take place under absolutely dust-free conditions.

The finished Urushi surface is then amazingly resistant to heat, water, alcohol, acids and even solvents. Only too strong UV radiation by sunlight is not well tolerated.
The varnish is permanently elastic, food safe and can prevent mould growth.

Pieces of high quality are characterized by a flawless high gloss and the depth created by many translucent layers.

In combination with the very own sense for form of Japanese artisans, pieces of perfect beauty are created.

Urushi tableware feels cool and warm, firm and soft at the same time.

The articles offered here are comparatively simple utensils, as they are still used today in many households and restaurants.

Japanese connoisseurs and lovers of Japanese cuisine will not want to do without the decorative effect and the haptic experience.
