Gomei Kinpaku Kogei applies gold leaf to vessels produced by Yamanaka Lacquerware’s masterful techniques. Yamanaka achieved the number-one-ranked technique in Japan for woodturning and distinctive lacquering. On top of their painstakingly hand-crafted vessels that faithfully preserves the grain, Gomei’s virtuoso technique applies gold leaf twice. Their gold leaf is the world’s thinnest, so the wood grain subtly shows through from beneath.
Kanazawa Gold Leaf and Kyoto Gold Leaf Processing technologies combine to result in the completion of a masterpiece.
