item : Tray Designer : Masayoshi Nakajo Traditional craft : Johoji lacquerware

Semicircular serving trays featuring decorative designs in colored lacquer, silver, and gold on grounds in the classic hues of Johoji lacquerware: vermilion or dark wine-red. The simple designs, making deft use of straight lines rare in lacquer decoration, give birth to a new beauty in which modern and retro elements coexist.
Johoji lacquerware makes the most of the natural luster of lacquer, which only increases with time and careful use, growing along with its owner. In five or ten years’ time a brilliant and beautiful finish should result.
