Two members, Tatsuya Uemachi and Yuichi Yanai, will participate in KENPOKU ART 2016. After graduating from Kanazawa College of Art, they both became product designers in the corporate world. Subsequently, Uemachi decided to study the subject of food and started working in agriculture and restaurants, and Yanai took up ceramics. In 2014, they have started their activity as a group. They have won many awards for their crafts and designs that combine digital and traditional skills through computer-aided design, 3-D printer technology, and lacquer application. For KENPOKU ART 2016, they will meet with the professionals who collect sap for lacquer in Daigo, an important area of Japanese lacquer production, before making their work.
