For his ColoRing collection Jo Nagasaka used Udukuri, a traditional wood craft technique for polishing wood surfaces that reveals a coarse grain pattern which is then painted three times to create a vivid coloured, and smooth, surface.

"Udukuri is a traditional wood craft technique of polishing wood surface with a brush made of sew grass, to scrape off soft tissue so that coarse grain pattern is revealed." says Nagasaka.

"In our new line of furniture titled 'ColoRing' we feature this Udukuri technique. First wood surface is treated with Udukuri technique to reveal grains."

"And we apply three layers of different colors on the surface-in this process we use leftover paint from other constructions that would otherwise be disposed of."

"Finally the surface is thoroughly polished flat, and we get beautifully colored grain patterns on smooth surface."
