What is Luxury? - Object in Focus: Lacquer Vessel by Chung Hae-Cho
While lacquer is usually applied to wood as a finishing technique, Chung Hae-Cho has developed a method of building an object primarily from lacquer. Many layers of raw lacquer paste and fabric are applied onto a mould, providing thickness and strength. Each layer is individually cured and sanded. The outer layers of coloured lacquer are polished to a high lustre, which continues to develop over time.
In this film Chung Hae-Cho takes us through the laborious and intuitive process of making a lacquer vessel.
