URUSHI LACQUERWARE | 漆器

Today I’m just playing around to see how the Japanese lacquerware called ‘URUSHI’ –  a symbolic  ‘WA (Japanese)’  tableware photograph with other foods from other cultures.

This typical lacquerware  ‘URUSHI’ , the sap obtained from the urushi tree which contains a resin that polymerise and becomes a very hard, durable and plastic-like liquid.

If anyone is interested in the URUSHI LACQUER, here are some few links if you want to explore the craftsmanship of Japan.

Here are some dishes which I collect. A lot of these lacquerware are often found at flea markets as they come as antiques.

どの国の食器はそれぞれの国の文化がありますが特に『漆器』は格別な職人技に感銘を受けます。日本の素晴らしい文化の一つ。我家にあるものは決して高価な食器ではありませんが『漆器』は主人も好きで探してくる事が多々あり、我家の趣味の一つになってきています。

  1. They look so delicious and yummy 🙂 Your post makes me hungry 🙂 The miso soup looks bit different than we usually have in a Japanese restaurant in the Netherlands. Usually just water without mushroom..

  2. Thank you for your comments. Curious as to you miso soup that is served in the Netherlands. It must be a clear soup (we call it osumashi) with scattered scallions and dried tofu? I hope you will try making some at home…cheers.
