Chopsticks painted in the image of the sasafune.

Japanese children used to play with bamboo leaves by folding them
into a boat-shape and floating them on the water.

Mat coat
After applying the undercoat, the object is coated with shibo-urushi (natural lacquer mixedwith a thickener such as egg whites or tofu) and then gently tapped with a sponge made of padded silk. This creates an uneven surface that results in distinctive patterns. The degree
of unevenness depends on the type and amount of shibo-urushi used.


About urushi (natural lacquer)

In Japan, the sap of the urushi tree has been used for 9,000 years as a natural lacquer finish for high-quality furniture and tableware. It is also used as a coating to protect and preserve cultural artifacts as well as the wooden columns, window frames and other fittings in old temples.
