Full Moon Jar in Black Lacquer by Robert kuo, Limited Edition

US$3,000per item

About

Full moon jar Black lacquer (60 coats) Copper base Hand repousse Lacquer is a laborious and time-consuming process. After it is tapped from the trees, lacquer needs to be boiled and strained to rid of impurities and prepare it as a coating. The lacquer technique is to apply in thin layers multiple times, waiting for each layer to dry for 24 hours before the next application. After the lacquer dries, artisans then hand carve these intricate designs as seen on the doors of this cabinet.

Customization Options

Available in Cream Lacquer, Antique Copper, Red Lacquer.
