Description
AKAJI Yusai applied the Magemono technique(bentwood work) to woodwork and produced the new magewa-dukuri technique. This technique does not warp the wood. This work combines magewa in black and cinnabar lacquers. The decorated gold lacquer glitters only slightly, giving the tray a reticent and refined style.
