Collection: Danitrio

Maki-e is a Japanese lacquer-ware technique that was developed 1,200 years ago.

Maki-e artists are very talented and diligent artists. Humble, honest and friendly, they prefer to be called "artisans" or "craftsmen" rather than artists.

The pool of Maki-e artists in Yamanaka and Wajima is dwindling and fewer Japanese people are interested in learning the art of Maki-e, but thankfully the government has taken an interest in ensuring its survival.

The cost of Maki-e is measured by the volume of work by which it was created. Pieces that employed Shishiai techniques are most expensive, and ones that used simpler Hira Maki-e techniques cost much less.

However the beauty of Maki-e does not depend on which techniques are used; it depends on the artist's designs and technical skills.
