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 three more of his masterpieces: the Kanshitsu box [Heathered grain] (2016) , déjà vu (2016), and Mirage II (2021).
Although the Kanshitsu box [Heathered grain] and déjà vu are both earlier works by Sasaki, the finish is still breathtaking. The Kanshitsu box [Heathered grain], in particular, is a masterful representation of the texture of wood, with the lid opening to reveal that it is not made of wood, while the déjà vu and Mirage II show Sasaki's ability to mimic the texture of leather, with the tops of the two pieces embossed to mimic textile textures.
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.
