Raden (Lacquer Overview)

Raden - Ra = Mother o f Pearl, Den = Sprinkling
Raden is a Japanese decorative craft used in the creation of lacquerware and woodwork, though it can be applied to metal and other surfaces. The basic underpinnings of raden consist of variously applying the cut linings of mother-of-pearl, abalone, and other shells into the surface of the target lacquer or wood. There are many ways that raden is produced, with all techniques classed under main categories: „atsugai“ using thick shell pieces, „usugai“ thinner pieces, „kenma“ thinnest application of shell pieces, „raden migin“ fine mother of pearl dust or particles
