Details

Almost celestial, its spherical tendency drenched in vermilion mystery, this decorative vase intrigues with the sensuality of lacquered designs. From the hands of Daeng Thanunchai, the piece offers a flawless Thai accent for any home décor.

To complete this piece, coiled bamboo basketry is firstly carved on a lathe into the desired shape. A mixture of lacquer - obtained from the Gluta usitata tree - and ashes of burnt rice paddy husks is then applied to the object. Upon exposure to air the mixture dries to form a watertight seal that is polished before another coat is applied. This process is repeated until a rigid base is formed, and a final polishing is executed with sandpaper. Then several coats of pure lacquer are painted on the object, with drying periods in between each coat.

The work is partially polished with sandpaper according to a predetermined pattern - generally concentric - and a few coats of different lacquer colors are applied to the surface. Then the object is left to dry for a few days. The process remains identical for each ensuing color, alternating lacquering and polishing sessions until the design is achieved. The final coat is washed with water and polished with powdered fired clay, offering an irresistible sheen.

"So beautiful on my small black end table!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have put this beautiful bamboo jar on a small end table that is in the corner of my dining room. The color is so beautiful and it really pops on the black table! It amazes me that bamboo can be turned into something so beautiful! It is very lightweight, but smooth and shiny and has black on tan mixed into it throughout and on the top. I am seriously thinking of ordering the larger one and displaying them together. Do not hesitate to order this beautiful piece! Bravo to the artist for his superb craftsmanship of this lovely item!

"What an amazing piece of art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was blown away when this beautiful vase arrived at my home. Its amazing to know that it is made from bamboo and lacquer - even from its light weight one would not guess how it was made. Daengs work is superior in its artistry, the colors shimmer and the finish is truly breathtaking. There arent enough superlatives... This was a gift and the recipients love it and were just as amazed with it as was I. It was so tempting to keep it!

"Does not look like the picture"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The bowl I received is red on the inside, not the different shades of brown as shown in the picture. I cannot use it - and because it came from Thailand, Ill have to pay more money to ship it back. I already paid for the expedited shipping to get it.

"Now I have 2!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

After purchasing Celestial, a similar bowl by the same artist, I knew I had to have this one too. Now I have them both displayed together on the bookcase in my living room, and they look beautiful! The red is so warm, but vivid at the same time. They just make me happy... Do not hesitate to purchase this unique piece! Thank you Daeng!
