Chihiro Yamawaki
Japanese Lacquer Art (Urushi Art)
Ms. Yamawaki started studying Urushi art in college in 2008, and now exhibits her products in shops and galleries. Her ornaments depict themes of birth and fertility – such as seeds, buds, branches, or flowers. They often seem to blend in naturally with the human body, giving her work a unique appeal.
