Lacquer pots - 3 colours
These wooden pots are handmade using a traditional Sri Lankan method. Two different colours of lacquer are applied, with the first layer left to dry completely before adding the second. The artist then carefully scrapes off the top layer to reveal the layer below, engraving images of elephants, lotus flowers and other symbols to create a highly decorative container, ideal for jewellery and other trinkets. The interior is finished in the UK with acrylic paint.
