Keikou Nishimura (born 1966) is the third generation of a Kyoto family specializing in the art of lacquerware, one foot in the tradition of producing utensils for the tea ceremony, another deliberately rooted in the -guard.

He sculpts his shapes in keyaki wood (Zelkova serrata) which he covers with dozens of layers of polished urushi lacquer.
