Gold on Lacquer

Gold on Lacquer

Maki-e is the technique of creating gorgeous picture patterns by sprinkling gold/silver powder on top of patterns drawn in lacquer.
Maki-e styles vary and incorporate different techniques with the use of various materials and processes which have been handed down over generations.  The techniques of Maki-e were refined in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan.  Spectacular art pieces were created in this area from the Heian Era for the needs of the Imperial Court, temples and shrines.
