Today, we would talk about shikki (japan).
Shikki (japan) is a cup with lacquer. It is Asian traditional work. For example, it is from Japan, China, Korea and Thailand.
The lacquerware of top quality is very expensive. It is art.
The difference between the expensive one and the lowest one is how many times the cup is covered with the lacquer. A specialist takes a lot of time to make his best work. It is very beautiful and not only for dishes, but for art.
Especially,shikki (japan) in Echizen is one of the famous work. We would talk about history of shikki (japan) next time.
