Gobarashikki Renge Spoon

Gobara-shikki is a lacquerware tradition from Maniwa in Okayama, southwest Japan.

‘Gobara’ is a place name within Maniwa, ‘shikki' is the Japanese word for lacquerware.

With origins dating back more than 600 years, in 1865 there is record of approximately 400000 pieces made a year in the style. These volumes slowed, and dropped to zero in the mid twentieth century, until in 1989 a revival movement returned the practice to chestnut wood taken from the Hiruzen highlands in Maniwa.

These 'renge' type Chinese spoons are hand carved and lacquered in the Gobarashikki tradition.
