Bamboo Pedestal Bowl (Vietnam)
Made from compressed bamboo strips, this rich red dish can be used for serving or decoration. Each piece takes 45 days to complete (after the bamboo has been soaked for 6-12 months!).
Wound bamboo comes from Cat Dang, Viet Nam. The soaked bamboo is cut into very fine strips (0.08 inch) and pressed into a curve. The strips are then coiled outward from the centre of each dish. A frame is used to achieve uniform depth and angles. After a coating of cashew oil-based glue, the work is left to dry.
Each piece is cut, shaped and smoothed by hand, as many as four times, and then polished repeatedly. It takes many coats of paint, and many more polishings, to bring rough bamboo to this smooth, glowing finish. These repeated, patient processes establish the level of quality of lacquer products.
