The Japanese aesthetic is explored within this jewellery collection. The sleek surface and seductive colour-way of traditional Japanese lacquerware has influenced the design process. Copper is domed and oxidised mirroring a black lacquer bowl whilst rice is coated in ink and set inside. Varnish is applied to strengthen the rice and add a glossy finish creating a lacquer-like effect. Gold flakes are sprinkled on top as the ‘garnish’. Rice and lacquerware continue to be predominant features of Japanese cuisine today. Each wearable translates a fusion of the intricate beauty of Japanese food presentation and the effortless beauty of Japanese design.
