Japanese term or phrase: Raden
(These terms are from my EN to CN translation job, but I am sure they are in Japanese pronunciation. I have no idea of them.)
Mother-of-pearl mosaic is a traditional Japanese art form known as Raden; a technique which has become so rare that only a few master craftsmen in Yokohama still retain its secret.

螺鈿
Explanation:
螺 鈿 工 芸. mother-of-peearl work.
螺钿:亦作"螺填"、"螺甸",是贝壳薄片制成人物、鸟兽、花草等形象嵌在雕镂或髹漆器物上的装饰技法。平漆之后,而饰以彩色,则有描漆、彩漆、漂霞妆彩、花彩、描彩等制法,饰以金的,则有砂金、描金、洒金、涂金、泥金、贴金等名目,细按其各名称,自可推想其制法不同。总之,漆器之中,以雕漆为最高贵,亦以雕漆为最有艺术意趣,故历代均努力制作。宋人雕红漆器,如果宫中用盒,多用金银为胎,以朱漆厚堆至数十层,始刻人物、楼台、花草等图画,刀法之工,雕镂之巧,俨若笔画。
