Macaron (Set of Four)
Artist: CHEN Mingzong
Materials: Natural lacquer, wood, gold leaf
Size: H29mm x φ40mm
Chen’s art is most recognizable for his unique nodular or fluid patterns. They are made by applying successive layers of different colours and using mother of pearl, gold, silver, and minerals on the base of a raised moulded lacquer. In a rather repetitive process, they are polished flat, mostly by hand to reveal the patterns.
