Sun Disc (Black)

item : Plate Designer : Tsuguya Inoue Traditional craft : Kawatsura lacquerware

These pieces show a lovely contrast between their black lacquer grounds and the gold and silver decorative motifs. By matching the meticulous craftsmanship of Kawatsura lacquerwork with contemporary graphic design rendered in the chinkin (gold- or platinum-inlay carving) technique, past and present are merged and a new form of beauty is born. While they may be used purely for decorative purposes, these plates have also been carefully designed as lovely serving dishes.
