Lacquer

I didn't think I liked lacquer but a trip to the amazing workshop of Yuji and Yoshio Okada just around the corner from the house has changed my mind. Father and son are both international prize winners with work in major museums

The studio, on the right are old lacquer boxes waiting for repair, the bowls contain water with charcoal blocks for making stuff shiny


He can carve too, all one block of wood!
