A Box Full of Candies,
A Gift Full of Happiness.

As a way to introduce YAMADA HEIANDO's lacquerware into various lifestyles all over the world, we have applied traditional Japanese coating techniques of urushi to create this candy box. From as small as bite-sized dragées to as large as palm-sized macarons, candies in any size can fit to fill the box. It is a celebration gift for numerous life events, including weddings, birthdays, birth deliveries, graduations, and anniversaries.

While Western cultures let hosts to give guests favours of sugared candies at their parties, Japan, too, has a custom of presenting confectionery as a gift in scenes of delightful events. An underlying idea, in both cases, is to show feelings of appreciation and to share the happiness.

To add to such intentions, we have chosen a plum, a classic symbol of flourishing that has long been loved by the Japanese, for the motif on the lid. Our exclusive craftsmen capture the flower's quiet yet strong energy, hand-painting petals and boughs as their brushes advance (Further stories will be explained in the middle of this page).

What is URUSHI? All of YAMADA HEIANDO's products, from classic set of tableware to modern line of stationery, are finished with a traditional Japanese technique of lacquer coating. The technique applies sap of a specific lacquer tree called URUSHI (Rhus Verniciflua).

The history goes as far back as 3.4 million years ago, when the lacquer sap was used as an adhesive in Asia during the Stone Age. It was us the Japanese, however, that first recognised the beauty inherent in lacquerware. We refined the coating technique to the level where it became nothing but art.

Today, such distinguished craftsmen, including ones in YAMADA HEIANDO's ordinary of course, are entitled as a "Certified Traditional Craftsmen" from the government. We have been - and will always be - creating innovations with new varieties of lacquerware, representing contemporary lifestyle both in Japan and over the world.

MAKI-E,
The Finishing Sparkles on Lacquerware.
Typical examples of lacquerware were ones with finishing called MAKI-E. It is a traditional Japanese technique of gilding, to draw three-dimensional pictures and designs on a lacquered surface. Only meticulousness of the finest craftsmen can create this work of art, by portraying classical motifs in lacquer on a pre-coated model and sprinkling gold and silver leaf on top.

This beauty of Japan has been fascinating people all over the world, including Maria Theresa of the Habsburg dominions and her daughter Marie Antoinette. The two celebrities were so passionate that they set an entire room full of lacquered luxuries in the Schönbrunn Palace and the Palace of Versailles respectively. Maria Theresa even preferred lacquerware to "everything in the world, all diamonds." They referred to lacquereware as "Japan," after respect and admiration for the glorious country of the Far East.

Two Main Sizes, Too Many Ways to Fill.
