Silver Lining Wood & Lacquer Art by Yosuke Urakami A solo exhibition 27.5 - 19.6.2022
Curated and presented by Contemporary Crafts Centre
“Every cloud has a silver lining. When things look ‘black’, there is always some good aspect to it.”
Yosuke URAKAMI was born in 1985 on the Goto Islands in Nagasaki Prefecture. After graduating from high school, he continued his studies at Tokyo's Kuwasawa Design School which is one of the oldest institutions in Japan offering design education. He studied furniture design and practiced for almost ten years before setting up his own workshop in 2016. He currently works in Zaō town located in Miyagi Prefecture. Yosuke pays attention to detail and ensures that his wood works not only retain the original appearance and texture of the materials, but also reflect the beauty that lacquer art adds to these wood pieces. And due to this reason, he is fond of using silver foil in his creations. The vulcanized silver foil can produce a smoky effect, and create a stunning vintage speckles pattern.
