RemarksThe 54th JAPAN TRADITIONAL ART CRAFTS EXHIBITION selected.
It represents wild grapes in the mountains in autumn, bearing lovely fruit.
I applied 20 coats of light blue first and 25 coats of brown on the surface, for a total of 45 coats of color urushi. Then I engraved it.
I reduced the number of colors to two to emphasized three-dimensional expression by engraving.
To contrast with the brown surface, the light blue background has a matte finish without much gloss.
