  • Traditional lacquer painting techniques are applied to decorate this wood-fired pottery. Inspired by Dunhuang murals, every painting is unique on a small three-dimensional surface and reveals religious stories. Functionally it can serve as a water drain bowl for tea ceremony.

    "The process of lacquer art creation is always full of surprises. The artwork is always covered until the final polishing. It is so mysterious and exciting as if I were a child digging a treasure."
