Traditional Lacquerware

Unique handmade lacquered pieces from Burma (now Myanmar). The technique involves sap tapped from the varnish tree Melanorrhoea usitata or Thitsee that grows wild in the forests of Myanmar. It starts with finely cuts strips of bamboo, horse hair, and wood. Then layers of lacquer resin mixed with clay, wood sawdust, and ash are built up and polished with the ash of fossil wood. The designs are then elaborately handpainted by artisans.
