Lidded vessel

Description
Golden Fields of Rice is a contemporary shu tame-nuri lacquer-lidded vessel made by Matsumi Suzuki in 2009.

Suzuki was enthusiastic about pushing the boundaries of lacquer manufacture. Here he employed a technique called maki-e, which is the process of incorporating gold-leaf into the layers of transparent lacquer that are painted last upon the thin zelkova wood.
