Sayo Kuroki is the artist who creates various pieces that overturns the traditional image of so-called Japanese lacquerwares and that dazzles by the texture which is mistaken for the raw materials. While she uses the traditional technique called "Harigaki" which has been taken over for more than 500 years, beautiful lines of her design that features the fictional plants and flowers are the major charm.
From Kanazawa station, about 10 minutes on the bus passing through the major tourist attraction such as "Kenroku-en" garden, Kanazawa castle, the 21st Century museum, Sayo's home and atelier is in the small idyllic residential area. It makes sense that her beautiful unique pieces are created from this place. The house is very tasteful and calm while using the beauty of old Japanese style.
