The word urushi is thought to be derived from ‘uruwashi’ (beautiful, pleasing). Urushi itself is the sap drawn from the urushi tree.
This technique requires three main steps and layers of various urushi lacquer. Each layer of urushi required 12-24 hours of curing in a chamber (furo) where temperature and humidity are carefully controlled. Careful sanding is required between each layer to produce an even-level surface for the next layer. Urushi is a slow handcraft that takes 3-4 months to complete.
