Created by Vietnamese artisans, this round bamboo lacquerware vase is highlighted by a stunning red lacquer finish. The shape is set by hand, yet perfectly uniform. It looks wonderful on its own, or holding a display of your favorite flowers.
Made from compressed bamboo strips, this vase is ample size for fresh flowers. Each vase takes days to complete after the bamboo has been soaked for 6-12 months!. In the village of Tien Lu, the creation of baskets, lacquer ware and other handicrafts is an integral part of the community and culture, even causing a festival every year on August 21st. 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. Choose from teal or red. Domestic competition for the tourist market tends to cheapen both quality and the artisans' return from their work. This group, already with nearly members, hopes to expand through Worldstock, bringing additional villagers into better-paid work in improved conditions. The handcrafted nature of this product will produce slight variations in form and sizing. All measurements are approximate. Wipe clean with a damp cloth; not dishwasher safe.
