LACQUER TECHNIQUES & IVORY
Prerequisite: Open to all
Tuesdays, 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM
January 25 – March 15, 8 sessions
During this course, students render four small pieces: one with a European lacquer achieved through multiple glazes and a decorative pattern on its surface; an eggshell inlay to approximate a micro-mosaic with a satin-smooth finish; a 14th Century-style Negoro Nuri with a revealed black base under a worn deep red or golden lacquer; and a faux ivory objet d’art approximating a rare treasure.
