The longstanding popularity of Japanese lacquerware is closely associated with its aesthetic and practicality. Kinma, a representative technique used in Kagawa lacquerware, entails a complex process of engraving the surface of the lacquer, inlaying the grooves with lacquer, and grinding and polishing the workpiece to obtain a smooth and glossy finish. Despite the complicated manufacture, Kinma tea trays, bowls, plates, and even tables are just as practical as they are beautiful. They continue to be ubiquitous in daily Japanese life. The wall ornament in the picture is an example of the many forms of Kinma lacquerware. It is with practical use that Japanese lacquer continues to maintain such vigorous vitality.
