〇作者メッセージ 
アダンの木は沖縄では馴染み深いもので、特に海岸線で多く見られます。 パイナップルに似た実が印象的で甘い香りまでするのですが、食用の処理には大変な手間がかかり、現在では食べられていません。

■技法説明 型絵焼箔の作品について
 作品の一部もしくは全面に純銀箔を押し、そこに型紙を置いてその切り抜かれた形を硫化・変色させ、絵を浮かび上がらせるものです。仕上げに膠と顔料により僅かな彩色を施しています。このような作品表現を他に見た事はありませんので日本唯一かも知れませんが、確認はしていません。
「泡沫」は、先ず和紙に型紙で防染糊を置き、彩色する型絵染を行なっています。その後一度水元(防染糊を洗い流す)を行い、乾燥後に前述の箔の作業を行なっています。

〇 Artist message
Adan trees are familiar in Okinawa, especially on the coastline. The fruit of Adan is similar to pineapple and even has an impressive sweet scent, but it takes a lot of time and effort to process it edible, and it is no longer eaten.

■ Technique explanation About the work of sheet metal
A sterling silver foil is pressed on a part or the entire surface of the work, a pattern is placed on it, and the cut out shape is sulfurized and discolored to make the picture stand out. The finish is slightly colored with glue and pigments. I have never seen such a work expression, so it may be the only one in Japan, but I have not confirmed it.
"Bubble" uses a technique called Katae-zome to put resist dyeing glue on Japanese paper with a paper pattern and color it.
After that, Mizumoto (washing out the resist dye paste) is performed once, and after drying, the above-mentioned foil work is performed.
