A lacquer artist and woodturner based in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture. Eiko studied under Torao Nakashima and handles all aspects of the work by herself, from wood turning to lacquer painting. With her unique sensibility, she creates beautiful works that capture the dual nature of phenomena.
It is probably Eiko Tanaka’s instinct to bring out the personality of each tree. Exquisitely painted lacquer has brought new life to the chestnut wood. The attractiveness of curves by skillful wood turning also extends over the wood, creating a stunning view of the world.

Graduated from Aichi University of Education, Molding Culture Course, Lacquer Arts.
Graduated from Ishikawa Prefecture ground product wood turning technology training centre, Professional course.
Became independent and established the studio “AKATOKI”.
