Lacquerware From Fuzhou

China is the earliest country in the world using natural lacquer. SOIL brings to Hong Kong the works from one of the most esteemed masters Chen Jie in Fuzhou. Fuzhou is well known as the country’s lacquer capital, its bodiless lacquer is dubbed as one of the "Three Chinese Handicraft Treasures."


Black colour is the original colour of lacquer. In Chinese, the term 漆黑 refers to lacquer-blackness. This "little ants" box demonstrates well the lustrous blackness of lacquer.


The beautiful colour is achieved by applying layer upon layer of lacquer with gold leaf, and then polishing after every single layer.
