Working with Urushi 漆, the natural Japanese lacquer from the asian lacquere tree

The German-Japanese Artist Stefanie Hutter started to deal with forms, surfaces and materials as a qualified wood carver. Over time the natural Japanese lacquere called Urushi, became the material of her choice. Using the very traditional Japanese techniques, the paintings and objects have a modern Western design. The combination of traditional craft but nowadays completely artistic modern orientation as well as the Asian-Western design result in unique and exceptional works. Art through artistic handicraft is the motto here. Being affected by Japanese-German aesthetics, the intention is to create and experiment neither Western nor Japanese art, but to find a new way in between.
