Urushi artist Hashizume Reiko in Kuroe, Wakayama, has been making urushi tea utensils and jewelries for over 20 years. After studying at Tsukuba University of Art and Design, she worked as a designer for several years in Tokyo before returning to Kuroe. While many traditional urushi artisans stick to the conventional motifs and flowers like cherries and chrysanthemums for tea containers, Reiko creates clean and simple contemporary designs and also spotlights humble motifs.
