Mayu Nakata encounters the lacquer art kinma technique in Kagawa Prefecture and enters the lacquer art path. She became the 2019 Loewe foundation Craft Prize 2019 Finalist, and became an international figure.
She carves with a sword, applies lacquer, and polishes it. The set of carved points becomes a pattern. The motif of the pattern is the torches of Nara's bonfire or the sound of thunder in Kanazawa. However, rather than depicting it as it is, her sensitivity at that time is expressed as shapes and patterns.
We are fascinated by the fact that we see her works over and over again and enter her world. (From the owner)
