Wajima-nuri produces through the following three processes: “making a wooden base,” which makes the shape of the bowl, “painting Japanese lacquer, 漆 urushi” which means painting urushi on the wooden base, and “decorating” which decorates the bowl with gold inlay. There are about 100 processes in total, and the stage of “painting” has 23 processes of them. As opposed to the general way is a division of work, our Wajima-nuri “ICHIMATSU いちまつ” are done all of the painting processes in our workshop. Because of “All procedures are managed by one workshop,” not dividing the painting process, we can produce equally high-quality products.
