A tray representing a collaboration of Akita’s 2 traditional crafts
This collaboration of Kaba-zaiku and Magewappa, which are two of the main crafting traditions in Akita, gives a new form to this traditional piece. The two colors come from cherry bark and Akita cedar. Their contrast highlights the Kaba-zaiku’s special appeal. The base of the tray is made of Magewappa, which is wrapped with cherry bark. Its cherry bark highlights serve a practical purpose as handles. The piece carries an airy visualistic impression.
