Lacquerware from Myanmar is a visual delight, but beyond the physical beauty is the amazing background of how the pieces were created and used.

Myanmar craftsmen excelled in the traditional art, with skills passed down from generation to generation. Various styles and techniques were used, including engraving, gilding and relief-work. Lacquerware was used for utilitarian purposes while other specific shapes were used at religious ceremonies, weddings and temples.

Today, traditional lacquerware is becoming harder to find as workshops slowly abandon the time-honoured styles in pursuit of the tourist market
