We are crazy about lacquerware and there are a few pieces in the collection and we thought you might like to know the incredible way it is made.
For the surface preparation of lacquer ornamentation, the object is first sealed with a layer of lacquer and then left to dry for three to five days.
Once hardened, the object is smoothed and polished with sandpaper or an L-shaped knife on a hand-operated traditional lathe.
A second coating of lacquer mixed with finely sifted sawdust or powdered bone C tha-yo ) is applied.
After drying, the third coating of lacquer mixed with fine clay for a smooth lacquer surface.
Then the object is coated with 12-20 layers of best-quality pure lacquer. Each layer takes three to five days to dry.
The final process, the object is dry polished with ground fossil wood powder to become glossy.
The decorative process begins with adding colours and etching a freehand outline design into the smooth surface. Then more detail etching is added. No stencils or patterns are used.
Genuine lacquerware has a texture of slightly raised surfaces indicating the etching.
