星空の根来塗り

根来塗の特徴である頑丈さや、使うごとに変化していく美しい経年経過を活かした食器。道の駅ねごろ歴史の丘のカフェで使う食器なので、道の駅の近くにある根来寺の大塔に注目し、その特徴を取り入れることで地域性を汲み取った。この大塔は初層の平面が方形・上層が円形で作られており、同じように食器の底面を方形・上面が円形にすることで、シンプルで地域性のある美しい食器に仕上げた。さらに、本来は根来塗とは黒漆による下塗りに朱漆塗りを施すが、本提案は白漆による下塗りに黒漆塗りを施す。それにより使うたびに表面に塗られた黒漆がすり減り、下地に塗られた白漆が模様のように現る。そして根来寺の星まつりのように、夜空に輝く星が見えるデザインに変身する。

Dishes that combine the features of Negori painting and the main tower of Negoroji are our proposal. First of all, it was about the dishes we serve at the cafe of hill of historical hill of the Road Station, so I began with designing things that convey the charm and atmosphere of this area. Therefore, attention was paid to Negoro Temple which is the concept of the station on this road and thought that regionality is born by incorporating the characteristics of the National Treasures and the Great Tower. This large tower called “multi treasure tower” is a double-storied tower, with the first layer’s plane being square and the upper layer circular. And utilizing the features of this large tower, the bottom of the cup and square of the cup for roll cake etc. is square (square), the top is circular. As a result, a simple and beautiful design was born, finished in dishes with regional characteristics.
