"Skill - Murakami Kibori Tsuishu exhibition of artisan corner of ... Echigo Murakami tradition" began on today.

"Honba Oshima Tsumugi work presentation" is held by temporary exhibition sequentially from last week.


And as talk show by artisan was started at 14:00 in Aoyama square,

We tell about the design!


At first it is ... from Honba Oshima Tsumugi.


Hishinuma of Honba Oshima Tsumugi

Hishinuma in creator of Honba Oshima Tsumugi,

It is person making slightly strange Woven textiles.


Woven textiles is often made as thing looking good on room of kimono,

Kimono to look good with Hishinuma in hotel lobby,

And we make amorous glances to work in foreign country concept.


Color to acquire when person gets old in the West becomes primary color,

The feature is that there are many people who acquire quiet color when we get old in Japan.


We think why Hishinuma must acquire quiet color,

We wish that we want you to wear colorful article even if you get old,

We make Woven textiles.


Therefore using technique (including color grafting) that is exceptional in Honba Oshima Tsumugi,

We build up thing which various color taste is given to.


By the way, what color do you think rainbow to be constructed with?

We are considered to be seven colors in Japan,

Number varies according to countries abroad.


France is seven colors,

We are considered to be three colors in five colors, Africa in Germany.


This is religious difference and,

When if there was psychogenic difference, we were taught toward France,

You said.


In addition, Hishinuma puts hand in the spread of kimonos,

We educate to children in university and high school.


It is Murakami Kibori Tsuishu to have had you talk next.


Suzuki of Murakami Kibori Tsuishu

Murakami Kibori Tsuishu continues for approximately 300 years,

It is Officially designated Traditional craft products.


As well as Kamakura Bori,

We paint with lacquer after carving,

With detail of carving can be called characteristic of Murakami Kibori Tsuishu.


Originally with "thickly-coated red lacquer ware with patterns carved in relief,"

It was technique that reached from Chugoku.


Carve thing made of lacquer,

It is technique called thickly-coated red lacquer ware with patterns carved in relief to design,

Take opposite process in Japan,

It is interesting place to totally show like work made of lacquer.


Murakami Kibori Tsuishu takes division of labor system,

There are woodworker, engraver, painter.

It seems to be brought into question that woodworker decreases in that.


Suzuki was engraver and took qualification of Master of Traditional Crafts two years ago.

In the case of Suzuki, we only perform coating at the same time.


We are said to sprinkle lacquer,

We cannot sprinkle lacquer of Murakami Kibori Tsuishu.

This is because it uses very hard lacquer.


To thing performed woodcraft of,

In working that we ride lacquer

One that the feature is that it is slightly different from painter of other production centers in nuance.


And we repeat what we sharpen when we ride lacquer ten several times,

As we can finish finally painting,

It seems to take time very much.


Finally when we purchase Murakami Kibori Tsuishu,

After being asked what we should see by interviewer,

You said how long small carving and lacquer were painted with carefully.
