Possibility of the lacquer art
The picture book which published the work which what I made for a daughter drew with lacquer as camera-ready copy.
"I want to try the dust jacket of a CD jacket and the novel in future".
I consider shin lacquer as material of the art with it and the picture book of three items.
It is attractive that a mass production is enabled in collaboration.
Though "I think that it is a mission of the lacquered writer to offer a wooden bowl to 100 people, what I change form into printed matter and can wave to 10,000 people may not be good"

I want you to use it as daily necessity without putting it away
I say, "I do not have after all you use it even if I make a box in Maine and "you please show it if you please do not put it away, and a visitor comes" and untie it and say", "you are glad when you have it is a jewel at all and can enter and use" it.
The lacquer products such as a sheath and the armor of the sword, a samurai's pillbox, the coating basket are ever ...... in what was used as daily necessity outdoors.
It does not need to be assumed that it is an expensive thing for overprotection.
"Actually, you may overflow in more world that are a durable thing when you use" it.
It is publicized

Without being seized with only the beauty of the business
Though "the Japanese young person is the left side of the stage, I do not know the method I express sensitivity, and to put on sale".
It is said that I want young writers who regard not only the technique but also the design getting a lot of looks as need to try it hard.
The world of the folkcraft was seized with "business and the beauty".

"There is a panel of small lacquering when I look up when I was tired mentally, and a heart feels at ease naturally".
I think that this is a mental use

Finish coverage
"I carve it from the place hardest to please".
I tell you to carve it from eyes in the case of an animal.
I knew that there was the relentlessness that the process that I repeated was wasted in the world of the lacquer inlaid with gold when I failed in the last last.
The impression of the folkcraft was the world of strong lacquer art, but such a message of Mr. torige which should appear to the foreign countries was impressive to challenge the making of work in the few form conventionally.

Encounter with the lacquer inlaid with gold
"It was the school which brought up a successor of the Wajima lacquering technique when I entered it because I heard it when the school which let you draw a picture was established in Wajima".
Mr. torige which would set foot in the world of the lacquer art in this way.
"I wanted to actually draw a Japanese painting in University of Arts"
 
Mr. torige shows an image power in technique called the lacquer inlaid with gold of the Ishikawa Wajima lacquering technique tradition now.
The lacquer inlaid with gold is technique to let I rub cutting groove, gold dust into the lacquered surface which I paint and stacked with a picture with a lacquer inlaid with gold sword, and a picture rise.



I pick up the lacquerware which bought the softness to express with a knife in a secondhand store,
"This was a masterful performance, and there was splendid lacquer inlaid with gold approximately 100 years ago".
Mr. torige telling, I still refer to it.
The carving of the bent part is particularly difficult.
Though "I use the knife, I express the lacquer inlaid with gold softly".
I draw the lacquer work to use the soft hair firmly adversely.
I am tense at a moment of the reverse nandesuyone carving.
When lacquered coating is not good, I may think, "a is no use" as soon as I put a blade.
Therefore I am tense very much when I carve it first.
Wajima that was good at sale technique if the lacquer inlaid with gold which evolved in each place becomes in the middle of the Meiji era extends sales of the lacquerware.
With this, the technique of the lacquer inlaid with gold which there was in each place changed in Wajima.

Laquer gives a different feeling then paint
Laquer has seemliness,mysterious luster characteristic to it.
Mr.Torige says that black laquer is best material as it is jet black.
The shine found in red and black laquer wear cannot be found anywhere eles.
The laquer gives a feeling of "japan"that all nationalities can feel.
In English laquer wear is associated with Japan.
Laquer wear is naturally strong,however laquer products are not used as much as in the past.



Laquer products should not be placed in the dishwasher or microwave,but can easily be was dish soap and a sponge.
Actually,there is laquerware over several hundreds of yesrs old.
It is a charm seen even in one bowl "I would you to try even one miso soup bowl.
This charm can be felt by the (heat resistant)smooth fitting shape of the bowl on your lips and fingers ",says Mr.Torige.



Unlike the west,the Japanese each have their own chopsticks,soup bowls and rice bowls.
Considering the weight,materials,and such like,i choose which"They choose them after considering the weight,materials and such like.Becouse this is the Japanease way"

A work of a  Mr. torige is a one point thing the concentration that is shown because there is not a sketch basically.
Besides, it is said that I can go ahead through the carving without a sketch.
"It becomes "work" and is boring in old days though I carved it according to sketch".
It is said that concentration does not break off as for carving it without a sketch in a quite thrilling substitute.
Being divided into specialized labors goes ahead through the world of the lacquer art for efficiency early, and the engraver mass-produces things according to design.
Mr. torige did such study, too, but was not able to continue it for a long time.
Mr. torige which "thought to want to become a writer was too strong in from the small time" goes the original way and reaches it at the present.







Mr. torige that it does not make a weak point same thing one more to make the same thing.
I tell, "I can clean the second more, and force disappears adversely" even if I made it.
Many works such as the miniature is brought about in the feeling of strain called the public performance only for once in the circle that "after all there is an aura even if it is said that spirit is different, or the work of the ......
beginning is slightly rustic, and there was a mistake".





"A work may be finished with one chisel" in the first place a motif makes a clear distinction from so-called tradition industrial art object.
The expression that is realistic like a European picture.
When I was young, I seemed to have been criticized.
Mr. torige talks when "I have I come with kawaiitoka and straw worth, and Rei or a ...... foreigner and a child feel friendly feeling".
