Premium gift Japan style gift item gifts crafts Shippo yaki(Cloisonne ware),"KINJI UME"
Shippo yaki,the Japanese words for cloisonne, is well kown abroad sa a beautiful craft made through the process of precious metals using instant heat.
It is baked elaborately with putting enamel on it,so that it has a gorgeous teste which ceramic and lacquer ware don’t have.
Literally meaning of Shippo came from Buddhist sutra which assumes the colors of Shippo to seven heavenly treasures-gold, silver,pearl,emerald,agate,coral,and crystal.And ia was said to be the first purpose to express its gorgeousness and nobleness.
Through China and Korea,the art of cloisonne was finally brought to Japan with the Buddhist sutra.
Now we can see a Shippo at Shosoin which is one of the treas- uries in Todaiji.
In Keicho-era,a crahtman of gold in Kyoto had leamed the techniques to make Shippo,andthrough the development of the art of Sippo in Meiji-era,it is now est- ablished as an outstanding example of Japanese traditio- nal art craft.
