The lacquer in the Japanese comb is extremely intricate. Lacquer was first developed in China and later Japan. The material opened and offered to artists a wide scope to create beautiful paintings and pictures on furniture, trays, vases, cups and any kind meant for visual pleasure such as scenes from nature, mythology, and literature. The processes to reach this artistic level expanded into using silver, gold, inlay shell and other materials. The Japanese imported the art of lacquer from China and developed it into a rare and famous art. Most lacquer in Europe was called “Japan”, as was porcelain called “China”. Like most Japanese work, the MAKI-E Lacquer’ work is most intricate, done in many layers, finely polished with a variety of ashes and the result is quite stunning.
The piece took 3 months to create with as many as 12 craftsmen and designers involved at various stages.
