Urushi is a Japanese traditional lacquer with 9,000 years of history. Our Urushi Flat Glass Dinner Plate in Gradation Blue color has an incredible depth. It is hand-painted one by one by Japanese traditional Urushi artists.
The groundbreaking technology invented in Japan protects the Urushi from flaking and scratches. Long exposure to dry climate provokes surface flaking. Dishwashers bring scratches. The Urushi color and transparent glass material's fusion results in its vivid clearness.
"As you turn or move the plate the colour of the plate seems to change. When I look for plates and bowls to serve my food on, I search for striking pieces that enhance the presentation, so if you are serious about finding a top quality plate to present your food on then I would recommend you go take a look for yourself."
