I visited the exhibition of Echizen lacquerware held at Fukui Kougeisha Craft Gallery. In the gallery, various collaborated works with pottery, glass, wine cask and Japanese paper, which you don’t normally see, are displayed. I interviewed the exhibitor, Mr. Minowa(Lacquer Craftwork Fuji), who produces and wholesale Echizen lacquerware, about each work and the attractions of lacquerware.
The exhibition gallery
The decorative plate of Echizen pottery with sunken gold was the most appealing in the exhibition.
