Introducing the Japanese art of raden, this online talk featured founder of jewellery brand SIRI SIRI, Okamoto Naho, and renowned maki-e craftsman Matsuda Shōkan.

Raden (lit. ‘shell inlay’) is a decorative technique involving the application of pieces of iridescent mother-of-pearl, cut from the inside of shells, onto a surface which is then coated with lacquer and polished. It has been used in Japan since the Nara Period (710-794 CE).
