Junko YASHIRO 八代淳子
Junko YASHIRO graduated from MFA in Urushi Arts, Department of Crafts, Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, Japan in 1995, where the university is the only one national university specialising in the arts among Japan.
Relocating to Karuizawa, Nagano with her family over ten years ago, she has begun her home-studio and started making limited lacquerware of her own design. Every lacquerware piece is handcrafted by Yashiro from a log of wood till the final touch of lacquer decoration.
Fuki-urushi technique is represented well in her lacquerware design. Thin and even lacquer coating is applied to highlight the natural, timeless beauty of the wood grain. These lacquerware are durable and will last.
The Gallery by SOIL is dedicated to presenting the art of lacquer from Asia. It is probably the first gallery in Hong Kong which brings together lacquer masters and artists of diverse cultures, blending the traditional with the contemporary to showcase variety in the discipline.
