This decorative sliding door for a traditional Japanese room (see picture above), costing around 5 million yen, was created some years ago. Demanding all our knowledge and skill, it took a year to complete. We have not assembled such an intricate piece since because hand-made glass and the use of tweezers are required for such detailed work.
At the time we created this piece entirely by hand, whereas now machinery is used for some of the processing. Unfortunately, the photo does not do justice to the fine detailed workmanship.
