Today I have three pictures for you.
They are serving trays I use daily.
They are Japanese made and of course, they are made of wood.
All in different styles.
ShunKe-i is a style of lacquerware.
I heard there are several house branches in ShunKe-i.
The most famous house is of Hida area (World Heritage).
This tray is of Ki-Syu WakaYama.
TakaOka is a style of lacquerware of TakaOka area.
How interesting to see the very different styles of lacquerware, comparing to ShunKe-i.
The last one is, I think, from Aomori.
Aomori is very cold and life is hard there in the winter.
But the people’s heart is very warm.
I think the tray carries the essence, with its powerful wood carving style.
