Midori Ishimeji


Midori Ishimeji (green stone) is the term for lacquer imitating green surfaces of the stone found in Hokkaido „Kamuikotan-Ishi“ stone surfaces. This lacquer is achieved by sprinkling dry lacquer powder „kanshitsu-fun“ into wet lacquer. In Japanese Art & Craft simulated stone surfaces „hada“ play an important role, found on many lacquer objects like sword scabbards, inro and boxes.
