Nasaka’s work from this period is inventive, experimental, and highly original. She displays a masterful use of technology and cutting-edge industrial materials—two hallmarks of Gutai—through her use of brightly hued car lacquer.

As the panel rotated, she used a palette knife to carve patterns into the material, a gesture she compared to working on a potter's wheel.
