Lacquer in Design: from Myanmar to Miles Redd

We were on a little jaunt around Singapore the other weekend when a spot of thunder and lightening and tropical crazy rain hit.  We ducked into the Asian Civilisations Museum for a gander while the sky did its thing, and stumbled across their small but perfectly formed exhibition on lacquerware around Asia (running until November 16, better get your skates on).

We’ve seen lacquered pots and shizzle around the region from time to time (Myanmar and Vietnam are especially famous for the good stuff) but this was the first time I’d seen such incredibly intricate designs, especially the ones incorporating gold leaf and mother of pearl inlay – just beautiful! {Err please excuse the dreadful pics}
