Yamanaka Lacquerware

Yamanaka lacquerware is made in the Yamanaka Hot spring district of Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture and it has more than 400 years history.
In Yamanaka, there have been many craftsmen who processes and manufactures woodwork products such as bowls and trays using a potter's wheel.
A major feature of Yamanaka lacquerware is that it makes the best use of the wood grain pattern and expresses the natural texture. This creates a robust lacquerware that is not easily distorted by drying, and enables elaborate finishing of not only bowls but also thin edge and lids.
