“MIKI URUSHI WAJIMA, MIKI SUKI URUSHI”, designed by Yuichi Nara
Released July 5, 2022
The zelkova wood frame used for the MIKI clock is finished with Wajima-nuri and Suki-urushi, both of which are traditional crafts from Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture.
Wajima-nuri creates a durable coating film and an extremely smooth surface finish achieved through multi-layer lacquering and polishing. Suki-urushi has a beautiful finish that highlights the unique grain of the zelkova wood beneath the transparent lacquer surface. This clock enables you to fully appreciate the time that the zelkova tree has taken to grow, along with the time and effort that the craftsmen devote to the lacquering process. The clock hands are finished in gloss paint to match the glossy feel of the lacquer. A special printing process that raises the printed surface is used for the numerals and indicators on the clock face.
