Details

Sleek black lacquer is strewn with brilliant flowers, each one painted by hand. Nantana Sompamitre creates the floral gardens on a matched pair of octagonal boxes. She carves mango wood into the desired shape and coats it with lacquer. Once dried it is polished, and another coat is applied – up to twenty times – before as many six coats of pure lacquer finish the piece. The final layer is polished with powdered fired clay.

"Extremely delicate paintwork"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I really like these lacquer boxes for their unusal shape (square, oval and round being the norm) and the intrincate and minute brushwork of the painting. It is delicate and minimal at the same time to cumpliment modern and minimalist interiors.

Best Uses

  • Bobonnière, decoration, to keep knick-knacks

"The little boxes ARE the gift!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Dear Ms. Sompamitre, I bought these lovely hand painted lacquered boxes so I could add a ring, earrings, necklace etc., of my own, and then give them as gifts to my nieces. I was so surprised at just what beautiful craftsmanship went into creating each singular box! They are truly unique gifts in and of themselves! Thank you most sincerely for sharing your artistry with my family and myself. PS. I especially loved the way you continued the floral motif around the circumference of the bottom portion of the box. Its surely an artists touch!
