Japanese art its love for nature is one of the world’s greatest treasures, covering a wide range of art styles and media, including ancient Japanese Lacquer, pottery, sculpture, ink painting and calligraphy on silk and paper, ukiyo-e paintings and woodblock prints, ceramics, origami and more. However, the Maki-e lacquering technique started by the Japanese is one of the most intriguing, starting over 1,000 years ago, which involves sprinkling the design with gold or silver powder as a decoration using a brush. Bamboo tubes and soft brushes of various sizes are used for laying powders and drawing fine lines. As it requires highly skilled craftsmanship to produce a Maki-e painting, young artists usually go through many years of training to develop the skills and to ultimately become Maki-e masters.
