About US...


TsuishuTsuishu is a type of lacquerware technique in which lacquer is painted on the surface of unfinished wood in hundreds of layers to create patterned reliefs, then frosted to finish.
The finish looks vermillion tinged with black, but over many years, the color changes to a richer, translucently sparkling vermillion.
*Vermillion surfaces are known as tsuishu, while black surfaces are known as tsuikoku.
