Amazing Art – Japanese Yosegi Decorations

Instead of using paint, Japanese Yosegi decorations are made out of natural fine grains and textures of wood. First, timbers are cut into rods of desired sections, the rods are then glued together to form a section of geometrical design pattern. The surface is sliced into thin plates of wood, which are glued onto boxes and other handicraft works. This mosaic-like art originated during Japan’s Edo Period (17th-19th century) and are still respected all over the world.

Yosegi, which literally means “to put wood together,” involves creating intricate geometric mosaics of wood shaved into extremely thin sheets used for decorative effect, often on small boxes and trays.
