Artisan: Daeng Thanunchai

Artisan Daeng Thanunchai

"I have been crafting lacquer wares for over forty years. My parents did not have the financial means to afford the education of six children, so I had to leave school. We heard one day that the Department of Factories was promoting a course with a lacquer ware specialist from Japan, so I enrolled and learned from this Japanese master of lacquer for six years.

"Upon completion, I worked for the company who funded the course. During that time I met Jinda, who was later to become my beloved wife. I worked for this company many years and eventually I was promoted to head worker. The owners, my co-workers and the customers liked my works and that really made me proud and happy. But I gradually thought of starting my own workshop, because I was not being challenged anymore and the company was taking credit for my work. I resigned and set up a little workshop in my house.

"Hand-crafting lacquer ware is extremely difficult. A single piece takes me between one and two months to complete, sometimes even longer. In the past, when technology was not as advanced as today, it took us even longer a time for we had to obey the natural laws, follow the seasons, and give into their wishes. You see, the humidity is a very important factor in the drying of liquid lacquer."
