Product Description

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 luxury 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 togidashi (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.
