About US...


Zuiun-nuriPolished to a high shine with a beautiful sienna color, these works only grow finer and more dazzling as the years go by.
No two have the exact same pattern. Each is a unique work of art!
*Zuiun-nuri is a unique technique passed on only to Master Tanioka.


ZuiunIridescent clouds have always been a sign of good fortune on the way, and clouds passing close to the sun are a sign of luck.


This method involves painting on black lacquer before polishing it with charcoal, which results in a very smooth surface with a deep, lustrous color.
Once the black lacquer is painted on, it is polished and painted again and again, over and over.
Unlike in most forms of lacquering, there are no visible brushstrokes in the final product, which prevents dust and dirt from adhering to the surface.
In addition, the undercoat has been hardened with lacquer sap, which makes it durable against humidity.
The smoothness and luster of this pure black paint creates an elegant beauty that other paints cannot hope to match.
