The beauty of use by Zhuwu Lacquerware
Fine Dust (Long Slim Lacquer Box). This box was crafted based on the application of the traditional Chinese bo luo lacquer, or pineapple lacquer literally, a mixture of raw lacquer, turquoise, cinnabar, coral, ect. The abstract patterns as a result of changes of texture on its surface create a sense of elusiveness.
Elegant Music (Paperweight). As a part of the traditional Chinese Four Treasures of the Study (文房四宝), this paperweight takes on a new look different from traditional ones by the artisan’s inlaying copper in wood to increase its weight and applying the traditional Chinese bo luo lacquer, or pineapple lacquer literally, a mixture of raw lacquer, turquoise, cinnabar, coral, ect.
One reassuring thing on the several young staff of Zhuwu Lacquerware is their optimism, confidence and aspiration that the young people should have, as opposed to hesitation or inactivity facing a declining industry. The restless life of people nowadays has deprived them of many interest and pleasures that should have made our life more beautiful, leaving them in memory of the delight brought by beautiful things in the past. A more beautiful life is not far away from us as a matter of fact.
