About Lacquersmith LYNX
Let me introduce about me and my brand “Lacquersmith LYNX”.
I’m TAKAHIRO SUMIDA. Japanese.
I like to make stuff and I think I’m good at it. So, I decided make stuff for living.
I’ve learned Japanese lacquer technique at Wajima where is a famous place for lacquer-ware.
I was thinking when I started this business, lacquer-ware is not for me.
Instead of lacquer-ware I find a potential in jewelry.
And I‘d like people all over the world to know about Japanese lacquer art.
So, I choose the SAMURAI for my design. Because everybody know the SAMURAI!
Do you know between the SAMURAI and Urushi (Japanese lacquer) have a connection? It is a SAMURAI armor.
The SAMURAI armor is painted with Urushi.
It is meant to be that I paint Urushi on the SAMURAI design jewelry!
This is a story how to born a SAMURAI jeweler.
