Traditional Japanese lacquerware
Look at the lacquerware produced in different Prefectures of Japan. Choose the shape that you like best and make a simple line drawing of that shape. Then choose the color and design that you like best, and use it to fill in the shape. Make note on the paper of which Prefecture your shape and design come from.
