Studio Lacquer Vietnam
Studio Lacquer Vietnam Fieldtrip
In 2004, with successful application of a Faculty Research Grant from the College of Fine Arts - The University of New South Wales I was able to undertake a three month residency to Vietnam to investigate the materiality and processes employed in Vietnamese lacquer.
A Vietnamese Lacquer Investigation: A field study of traditional Vietnamese lacquer manufacturing centres, lacquer artists, and museum collections of lacquer objects. A project which investigates the traditional and the contemporary, materials and techniques of Vietnamese lacquering processes (mother-of-pearl inlay, carved lacquer, gold sprinkling) and Vietnamese lacquer objects (paintings, screens, home wares, furniture).
