Chopsticks painted in the image of Tensa.

Tencha is the act of preparing powdered green tea and is synonymous
with the tea ceremony itself.

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.
