Amano lacquer ware [Takaoka lacquer ware]

Raden and glass
New world of lacquer

The history of Takaoka lacquer ware dates back to the beginning of the Edo period. It is said that when Toshinaga Maeda, the second generation of the Kaga feudal lord, built Takaoka Castle, he made the set and furniture to be placed in the castle. Techniques such as banking and blacking have been handed down from China, and the techniques of Takaoka lacquer ware, such as carving wood and carving lacquer on the tint block, and Raden, which embeds thinly cut shells to express a gorgeous pattern, connected.
Amano Laquer Ware was founded in 1829 as a studio that manufactures Takaoka Laquer Ware. From the beginning, we have continued to make products that suit our daily lives, and while facing the needs of each time, such as trays, small boxes, and suzuri-bako, we are developing original products with "if we use them" in mind.

A unique combination of unique beauty

Amano lacquerware made by hand The products are also unique in that each one is unique because of the addition of processing such as Raden and wood carving. Flowers, birds, and natural patterns that look the same are not the same in color created by natural shellfish.
Furthermore, "Raden glass", which combines its unique beauty with transparent glass, is a gem that surprised Japanese people who have become familiar with lacquer ware. The glass was decorated with Raden and wrapped in lacquer. The brilliance of thin shells is wrapped in lacquer and glass, making it even more beautiful.
The brilliance of Raden that seems to reach but does not reach. The craftsmanship of Amano lacquer ware has created a new world of lacquer that traps the Japanese aesthetic sense.
