echizen lacquer urushi kako

Kako is the Japanese word for crater. The title was chosen because the work resembles the fiery mouth of a volcano and was coincidentally also made using fire. Another example of a unique collaboration between the craftsmen of the Echizen area: Kako was created in earthenware by ceramicist Mitsuo Kasatsuji and lacquered by the craftsmen of Tsujinao lacquer ware. A unique product with a unique combination of materials.
