URUSHI MAKI-E: HISTORY, TECHNIQUE & BEAUTY.
Maki-e is a Japanese lacquer art that utilizes urushi lacquer to decorate. Stemming from the words maku meaning to sprinkle and e meaning painting, maki-e is a technique that a gold powder is sprinkled over after undercoating, painting, and coloring so as to obtain a luxurious and stereoscopic effect. The quality of maki-e largely depends on the work process of shitaji (undercoating) and uwanuri (top coating) that affect the total outcome, and finally the togarashi (polishing of the surface to make it flat) after the top coating determines the quality of the final work.
The maki-e technique is distinguished from other decorating techniques such as hyomon technique in which haku and kirigane (gold foils thicker than haku) are used other than a gold powder, rankaku technique (decoration using fragments of quail and chicken egg shell to express the white color), and raden craft, which is a decoration made by inlaying shells like turbo marmoratus and abalone. It is also distinguished from chinkin technique, in which the gold powder or haku are inlayed into the carved surface.
STORY BEHIND THE URUSHI MAKI-E: SAKURAHARUKAZE "SAKURA SPRING BREEZE". The heart of the Japanese, cherry blossoms. It is a flower that symbolizes Japan, and says, "If there are no cherry blossoms in the world, the heart of spring will be calm (if there were no flowers of cherry blossoms in the world, people's hearts would have been calm)". As Ariwara no Narihira wrote, cherry blossoms have become an inseparable part of Japanese life and culture.
The Japanese are the only people who look forward to the cherry blossoms blooming in the spring when the snow melts and are willing to disperse them. The cherry blossoms given in the lacquer work this time are bright and pretty pink, and will be widely appreciated by young women and elderly people.Sakura, which symbolizes Japan, is a perfect souvenir. It is a product that will please you both domestically and internationally. Founded under the name of "Kuretake Sumi" in 1902, the company began to produce the sumi, a brush similar in style to certain watercolor brushes, also with a generally thick wooden or bamboo handle and a broad soft hair brush that when wetted should form a fine tip. Oriental brushes were created for the traditional painting techniques of Japan and the Far East, such as sumi painting. Both the techniques themselves and the brushes have become popular in western countries. Bamboo and sumi brushes have become popular with watercolor artists for detailing and fine lines, while the hake brush is used much like a square wash. In 1965 Kuretake Industries Co. Was established as a plant specializing in the production of writing instruments while Tokyo office was established. In 1986 a subsidiary, Kuretake U. Was established in the West Midlands, England.
