Lacquerware in Vienna
The Wajima Lacquer Study Group will be taking part in the Masterpiece Collection 2016 to be held at the Novomatic Forum in Vienna from 23rd to 25th June.  This prestigious event hosts firms and organisations which are manufactures of precious goods with a living tradition producing fine work of the upmost precision.  What better than the work of Shioyasu Workshop to headline the work done in Wajima using true lacquer and techniques that have been handed down over the years.  Some of Wajima’s finest work will be exhibited along with various pieces of equipment used in its production.
