【CYPRESS –The beauty of Kawari-nuri】

Kawari-nuri is one of the urushi crafts. To make these varnished patterns, commonly known as "graining", uses less strokes, but uses a variety of tools to make the patterns. Instead, Graining is usually random, so two pens cannot replicate exactly the same pattern, It is even more difficult to add shells or eggshells in the Kawari-nuri process. The shells and lacquer have to be polished many times to make them smooth and seamless, which takes the test of time.

The special drying conditions of natural tree lacquer are extremely cumbersome and time-consuming, requiring dozens of repeated painting and polishing. The designer is careful every time It takes several months to make a pen, creating a distinctive feature, and the output is scarce and precious, so the work has a unique artistic value.
The tree lacquer has been collected and made into lacquer pens. With the increase of time, the color and luster will only become more and more clear and beautiful, the hand feels warm, and it will show the everlasting collection value.
