水揚げされたばかりのロブスターを見たとき、その水を纏った質感が漆にそっくりなことに驚いた。
漆塗面を生かすのは曲面であると考えているので、その曲面の連続でできている海老の体躯を使った作品を試みた。

技法:朱黒溜塗り、比翼金箔仕上げ

When I saw the lobster that had just been landed, I was surprised that the texture of lobster water coated was just like Urushi lacquer coated.
I think it is the curved surface that makes the Urushi lacquered surface look the most beautiful.
Therefore I tried a work using the body of a lobster made of a series of the curved surfaces.

Technique: Shudame-urushinuri (vermillion lacquer with translucent overcoat), Gold leaf gild
