Shining jewel inlay

Koun Kiyomitsu has been working on precious stone paintings since 1960, gradually shifting his mind to granular research, and wanting to make full use of the glittering brilliance and abundance of jewels in his life. I arrived. Koun sought the natural brilliance of gemstones in his production mind, and pursued every day to approach this through his mental skills. We processed a special base plate, established a method for producing granule-encapsulated resin, submitted it to the Japan Patent Office in 1974, and registered it for permission (Patent No. 859922).
