The Japanese Wood Inlay was developed in Odawara city. The works used to be exported to the foreign countries around 1820 through to 1935. The Inlay 17mm thick is sliced into 80 to 100 very thin
sheets with the plane called “Senn Plane”. Each piece of the wood to be inlayed is usually sawed by a scroll saw “obliquely”, but I do it totally “plumb”, that needs the highest technique. All
the sliced works by me look almost the same picture by it. The thin sheets are pressed firmly onto the back board; they are hardly transformed by the change of humidity. Using the natural wood
only; my Wood Inlay keeps the color and they even get more deep colors with the years.
