Coating layers of lacquer creates a resilient and beautiful surface, yet at times, it makes it hard to see what's inside. This kind of dilemma is a unique charm of lacquer art, but I think it's similar to various things thst happen around us. Take money, for instance—it's a handy way to put a value on things in numbers, but getting too fixated on those numbers might make us lose sight of their true worth.

I think it's essentialin today's society to not just focus on the surface of things but also to pay attention to those "invisible aspects". At the same time, seeking honesty in the unseen isn't just a trait of lacquer art; it's a vital spirit that has upheld Japan's culture.
