I used Chinese and Japanese porcelain. The two were joined with URUSHI lacquer. Do you know which is made in China and which is made in Japan?
China and Japan have political problems. But we have a similar aesthetic. We use similar materials. We make the same technique.
We have a similar aspect of culture. Both are wonderful Asian cultures.
The two countries respect each other and I hope for a better future relationship.
