Fascinating History of Lacquer: Lacquer (urushi) is a living substance - sap - carefully collected from Urushi trees (a type of Sumac, which is related to poison oak and ivy). It has been used for over six thousand years in Japan to coat all types of things, from wood to baskets to leather to pottery. Lacquer-coated pots and wooden items have been found in Japanese Neolithic sites carbon dated to about 4500 B.C. And lacquer coated objects that have been in ocean depths for 18 months, or more, have retained their integrity. Far more protective and long lasting than Western lacquer (a petrochemical creation), natural Japanese lacquer has a complex organic structure which lasts and lasts, repelling liquids and heat. Many steps are taken to refine and prepare the lacquer, and even more intricate steps are taken to create/coat/decorate exquisite objects. This beautiful bowl is a superb example of this historic art. The Winged Phoenix presents: AN AMAZING FIND!
