Introduction of Artist
Nagomi Fujita, a talented young artist who is dedicated to creating beautiful and adorable artworks that captivate the viewer. She uses traditional Japanese art technique forms such as "urushi-e" (lacquer drawing) and "raden" (cut out part of the mother of pearl inside the shell, into the carved surface of lacquer or wood) to make amazing glass crafts and tableware (usually those techniques are used on woodcraft). She pays attention to ensuring that her creations are aesthetically pleasing and visually appealing to herself.
Nagomi Fujita was born in Osaka, 1994. In 2018, she graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts at Kyoto City University of Arts. Following her graduation, Fujita pursued further education and completed the Applied Course for Traditional Industry Technology Successor Training in Urushi Craft at the Kyoto Industrial Research Institute in 2019. In 2022, she honed her skills further at the Kanazawa Utatsuyama Kogei Kobo, and she currently resides and creates her artwork in Kanazawa.
I am meticulously crafting tableware that combines traditional lacquer decoration techniques with glass, resulting in a design that is both delightful and astonishing. I cordially invite you to personally witness the beauty of my creations.
