Today I’m just playing around to see how the Japanese lacquerware called ‘URUSHI’ – a symbolic ‘WA (Japanese)’ tableware photograph with other foods from other cultures.
This typical lacquerware ‘URUSHI’ , the sap obtained from the urushi tree which contains a resin that polymerise and becomes a very hard, durable and plastic-like liquid.
If anyone is interested in the URUSHI LACQUER, here are some few links if you want to explore the craftsmanship of Japan.
Here are some dishes which I collect. A lot of these lacquerware are often found at flea markets as they come as antiques.
