Pleats Storage Drumstool, Antique Copper and Black Lacquer by Robert Kuo



Pleats storage drumstool Antique copper Black lacquer Hand repousse Limited edition Each piece is individually crafted and is unique. Repousse´ is the traditional art of hand-hammering decorative relief onto sheet metal. The technique originated around 800 BC between Asia and Europe and in Chinese historical context, it began early as the Han Dynasty (206BC-AD220). The technique involves using a hammer and various shaping tools. Lacquer is a technique that dates back to the Shang dynasty, circa 1600-1100 B.C. These pieces are made with at least 60 coats of organic lacquer. Each layer of lacquer is applied with a curing period of 24 hours in between so that it can dry.
