We are pleased to announce the release of an exquisite art series by the renowned lacquerware artist, SASAKI Gakuto. He was awarded the semi-grand prize in the Japan Wabunka Grand Prix 2022.
Sasaki skillfully employs a range of lacquer techniques to craft lacquerware, each boasting unique and captivating textures.
In this showcase, we present two of his earlier masterpieces: the Kanshitsu box [Snakeskin] and the Kanshitsu plate [Iron rust].
The Kanshitsu plate [Iron rust] artfully mimics the tactile essence of iron and rust through lacquer, while the Kanshitsu box [Snakeskin], much like Ether(award-winning work from 2022), elegantly captures the luxurious feel of leather.
Don't miss the chance to immerse yourself in the allure of these exceptional artworks.
Additionally, we are preparing to showcase his other works on Green Pheasant, so please stay tuned.
Sasaki's artworks will be featured on a dedicated page at Green Pheasant. This page will exclusively introduce and display the artist's unique works. You can also inquire about these pieces via email. We aim to provide you with a more personalized experience, allowing you to explore the inheritance and innovation of Japanese culture online.
