Kamakura Lacquerware


Laquerware from a visit to Kamakura in 1995. The tray is still the same as the day it was purchased. It has not warped or suffered any signs of aging or decay. It has been kept out of direct sunlight. If properly cared for, this tray could be on display in a museum someday in the distant future. That is the type of craftsmanship practiced in the creation of Kamakura Laquerware. Painstaking attention to detail, quality of craftsmanship, proper prepartion and quality materials.
