The goal of this website is to raise awareness and generate an interest in the traditional Japanese craft known as “Maki-e”. The practice of “Maki-e”, which means “Urushi with gold powder”, has been carried down from the Heian era (794 to 1185). Little is known outside of Japan about this great art. We hope you enjoy this website and learn to appreciate and enjoy this beautiful traditional art.
