Details

A modern and elegant jar finely lacquered by Daeng Thanunchai. The concentric pattern, made of tones contrasting the black background, is an example of the artisan's modernization of lacquer works. A unique storage vessel for the den or office.

To complete this piece, raintree is firstly carved into the desired shape. A mixture of lacquer - obtained from the Gluta usitata tree - and ashes of burnt rice paddy husks is then applied to the object. Upon exposure to air the mixture dries to form a watertight seal that is polished before another coat is applied. This process is repeated up to twenty times, and a final polishing is executed with sandpaper. Then several coats of pure lacquer are painted on the object, with drying periods in between each coat.

The work is partially polished with sandpaper according to a predetermined pattern - generally concentric - and a few coats of different lacquer colors are applied to the surface and the object is left to dry for a few days. The process remains identical for each ensuing color, alternating lacquering and polishing sessions until the design is achieved. The final coat is washed with water and polished with powdered fired clay, offering an irresistible sheen.

My beautiful lacquered pot, 'Drifting in the Wind' arrived in the mail today, packed and wrapped with great care. It was like unwrapping a big grey shiny egg. A huge thankyou to the artisan who made this lovely thing and to the team of people who have helped make this all possible Clare L Hamel (New Zealand).
