Anzai’s works are always minimal which highlight the beauty of shape and form. They remain modest and yet elegant. His works are usually light in weight as he applies Kanshitsu technique in his creation. Audience’s eyes are sometimes fooled by the appearance of his works to recognize them as vessels made of bronze, ceramic or clay. In reality, his works are made of what has been in reality obtained with layers of lacquer finely applied on hemp cloth.
