Lidded Box

Brand: analogue+
25,000 yen ($213.87 USD)

We had this large urushi lidded box handcrafted for Analogue Life by Fuji Seisakusho. Husband and wife team Kenichi and Minako Fujii work together to produce each box. Kenichi, a skilled wood turner, shapes each piece in preparation for Minako whose expertise lies in the application of the lacquer.

Minako finished the boxes using the technique of fuki-urushi which involves a process of repeatedly applying and wiping off the lacquer which protects and strengthens the wood and highlights the beauty of its grain.

The thick solid lid made from horse chestnut and finished with beeswax, fits loosely but firmly on the lacquered base.
