$11,250per item


Woodgrain with lacquer bench Antique copper Black lacquer Hand repousse Limited Edition Repousse is the traditional art of hand-hammering decorative relief onto sheet metal. The technique originated circa 800 BC between Asia and Europe and in Chinese historical context, it began early as the Han Dynasty (206BC-AD220). The technique involves using a hammer and various shaping tools. Lacquer is a technique that dates back to the Shang dynasty, circa 1600-1100 B.C. These pieces are made with at least 60 coats of organic lacquer. Each layer of lacquer is applied with a curing period of 24 hours in between so that it can dry.
