Meet the Masters: Akito Akagi

漆藝雅敘 赤木明登

About Akito Akagi 赤木明登

Born in Okayama, Japan, Akito Akagi started his career as a magazine editor. He decided to move to Wajima, Ishikawa in 1988, and began his apprenticeship on lacquerware making. Akagi works independently since 1994.

Akagi advocated that lacquer art should be integrated into everyday life. He is also recognised as one of those who actively promotes Japanese lacquer making in a contemporary context. His inspiration comes from those pieces of the old days and ancient times which he found in temples or locally in Wajima. Akagi’s works blend traditional aesthetics with modern style.

"I feel the vitality of many old things. They give me a sense of freedom that is deep and precipitated. It is the basis of my creation. These old things are no longer confined to the beauty of their own. This is what I strive to achieve.”

赤木明登於日本岡山出生,早年曾擔任雜誌編輯。於1988年移居到石川縣的輪島學師硏習漆藝。 1994年開起獨立創作漆藝。

About SOIL

Founded in 2012,  SOIL aims to promote crafts through the inspiring history, culture and humanity behind them.


We offer a new perspective and experience to traditional crafts. 

In collaborations with designers and craftsmen across different 

disciplines and cultures, we hope to create better craft designs exposed to alternative methods and materials. Collaboration spreads our design sphere of influence and breaks down walls with new approaches.
