The Story Behind the Art
Wound bamboo comes from Cat Dang, Vietnam. 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 vase. 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.
