Yamamura Shinya b.1960
Yamamura’s    work    is    witty    with    extreme    grace .   A   highly sophisticated  but  unconstrained  beauty of his design is enhanced by  his  full  mastery  of  classic  lacquering  skills such as maki-e and mother - of - pearl   inlay or  of  some  modern  techniques  he  has introduced  with  his  initiative. Though he generally produces small hand-sized  objects  such  as tea caddy and covered box, the whole universe  of  lacquer  art  condensed  into this microcosm gives us a fresh surprise every time we handle this lacquer gem.
