For my European  readers and clients I wanted to mention the exhibit of 

KURODA TATSUAKI  (1904-1982) 

at the Museum fuer Lackkunst in Muenster, Germany. 

October 9th to January 22, 2012.
He was born in Kyoto into a family of lacquer artists,  and became a famous member of the Japanese Folk Craft Movement ( think  Soetsu Yanagi ).
I know very little about Kuroda Tatsuaki but I admire  Japanese lacquer art and I  am enamored with  and am blown away by the craftsmanship and striking designs of  20th century works of lacquer.
