AJIURUSHI

Aji Urushi (lacquered Aji stone), created by the combination of the traditional crafts (Kagawa lacquerware and Aji stone) in Kagawa pref., is characterized in having both the feature and massive presence of the stone and the mouth feel and beautiful colors unique to lacquer. Kagawa lacquerware produces various kinds of goods using the lacquer technique unique in Kagawa and different from the other general lacquering. Kagawa lacquerware, which is excellent in color lacquering, has been and will be creating modern products with innovative designs using many colors. With the lacquerware, sake can be more enjoyable with the mouth and hand feelings unique to lacquerware. Foods can be presented artistically.

Aji stone quarried from Aji town in Kagawa pref. is known as one of the three best Japanese granites, and is globally recognized as a high-grade stone material with the nickname "diamond of granite." The fine texture is tolerant against weathering. It glazes more when polished more. It is mainly composed of quartz and feldspar, and contains a tint of black mica, which gives a rare texture called "fu" (macules) to Aji stone.

Moreover, Aji stone is characterized in the hardness equivalent to rock crystal. With fine and tightly-oriented individual crystals, this stone can be finely processed with water tightness. This is why Aji stone is durable yet beautiful. It is said Aji stone can last 200 years, maintaining its color and glazing. Aji lacquer is good for daily use, while it can be used after being cooled in a refrigerator unlike normal lacquerware. You may find a cooled cup is good for cool sake and a cooled plate is apt for sashimi.
