CEAC exhibition

During my stay in China I was interested in the process involved in the making of bodiless lacquer.

I travelled several times to Fuzhou, which is the centre of famous lacquer ware.

I asked the lacquer painters how they could produce these smooth shiny surfaces in this polluted city, filled with dust of traffic and ongoing construction sites.

They replied: we polish the dust away! You will not see it in the end, the surface will be smooth!
