Sumi - Wipe Lacquer Black - Tray
This is a tray with a fuki-urushi finish that brings out the beauty of the grain of castor aralia. Fuki-urushi is a lacquering technique where raw lacquer is brushed on wood, excess lacquer is wiped off and the wood is then dried and polished. After that, lacquer is applied again. This process is repeated over and over. The more it is done, the glossier and darker the lacquer coating becomes. Lacquer seeps into the wood and strengthens it, providing a water-proof, stain-resistant finish. At the same time, the lacquer coating on the wood is so thin that the rich texture of the wood grain can be seen clearly. Generally, fuki-urushi adds the warm amber colour of raw lacquer to the wood. Sumi is a black tray with a shiny look, as though it is stained with Japanese sumi ink, created by using black lacquer for fuki-urushi. As small scratches and dents are barely noticeable on this product thanks to its fuki-urushi finish, it is suitable for daily use.

ABOUT JAPANESE LACQUERWARE
Lacquerware is an ancient Japanese craft where lacquer (urushi) is applied in multiple layers to materials like wood, bamboo, and paper to increase the strength and water resistance of the material. The base substance is the sap obtained from the trunk of the urushi tree, which is then purified, refined, and mixed with different pigments. Thanks to its excellent water resistance and heat retention properties combined with the beauty of lacquer, it has long been a popular material for creating works of art and items for daily use.
Wash lacquerware using a mild soap, as you would do with glassware or ceramics. Please avoid using aggressive detergents, polishing sponges, or scrubbers; use a soft sponge or cloth instead. After washing, we recom mend that you use a soft dishcloth to remove any moisture immediately. Wiping your lacquerware carefully polishes the surface and adds a shine that deepens gradually. Be careful not to stack lacquerware dishes together with ceramics and other hard-surfaced products when washing or storing to avoid scratches. Lacquerware does not respond well to sudden dryness, temperature changes, and UV-rays. Do not place your dishes under direct sunlight for many hours, and avoid placing them in the refrigerator,dishwasher,microwave,or oven. Leaving lacquerware dishes soaked in water or suddenly pouring hot water into them may cause peeling of the coating, discoloration, and deformed wood.
