Urushi lacquer was originally used to reinforce a material. A bowl made of hollowed-out wood is the most primitive type of tableware that allows one to scoop up soup and carry it to one’s mouth. This is the first form of a lacquered bowl, which is lacquered to prevent cracking or chipping and to make it durable and long-lasting.
Since then, in the pursuit of strength and beauty, the number of processes involved in making lacquerware has increased in the dozens, it has become more expensive, and it has found itself being treated as if it were a work of art. Shitsurindo has been producing Echizen lacquerware in Sabae city, Fukui Prefecture for eight generations and over the period of 200 years. It is important to inherit the traditional techniques, but we also do not want to produce lacquerware that is only for preservation. Furthermore, we want to make products that can be used continuously in everyday life. With this in mind, this product was born out of the idea of returning to the origin of the lacquer bowl.
