Description/

Tohru Matsuzaki’s piece is the vibrant color of life. Carefully hand-brushed layer by layer over black lacquer, this brilliant square lacquer plate gets its scarlet red color from cinnabar (mercury sulfide) pigment.


Tohru Matsuzaki

designer

Using chisels and planes, Tohru Matsuzaki carves the basic forms for his work from valuable blocks of solid zelkova or chestnut wood, finishing them in thick coatings of Japanese urushi lacquer. He creates forms that appear simple but are highly refined; the vermilion red lacquer evokes images of the Jomon period (ca 11000 BC - ca 300 BC). These unique works can be said to embody the essence of the Japanese ‘Mingei' folk craft movement.
