Product Information

Details

Hypnotic in its red and black swirls, this decorative plate recalls planetary visions with lacquered passion. Daeng Thanunchai experiments with an exquisite and original pattern, resulting in a marvelous adornment for the home. For decorative purposes only; stand not included.

To complete this piece, coiled bamboo basketry is firstly carved on a lathe 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 until a rigid base is formed, 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.

Story behind the art :My name is Daeng Thanunchai and I have been crafting lacquer wares for over forty years. I was born the 6th of February, 1946 in northern Thailand. I have two sons but they are not interested to learn my craft. I have not taught anyone for a long time, because teaching requires constant attention and hard work and I now want to be unworried and rest, but I also feel sad that nobody will carry on after me. Handcrafting lacquer ware is extremely difficult. I must use all my knowledge and experience, be extremely focused and above all very patient.In summer, we simply could not work with the lacquer for it would melt and behave strangely. Nowadays, to craft an object, I firstly design the shape and think of colors matching it. Then artisans make the object out of coiled bamboo and I lathe it. I also have adapted other materials to specific shapes so as to craft innovative items. I particularly work with clay that I prepare and that the artisans shape later on the wheel. Presently, I just work when the orders come in and rest in between. I am very pleased to have come in contact with Novica, and I am glad to see that objects made with my hands are going to reach people all over the world. I want to tell the customers that I spent my whole life to be a lacquer artisan, and my wares somehow represent this life. I will keep on crafting my objects to my best and you will not be disappointed when you hold and display them. To complete this piece, coiled bamboo basketry is first carved on a lathe into the desired shape. A mixture of lacquer 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 until a rigid base is formed, 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.
