Lacquer is a rather miraculous, unsung material. Made from the sap of a species of tree native to southern China but also cultivated in Japan and Korea, this resin hardens when exposed to oxygen and transforms into a natural plastic that is light, resistant to water and can withstand heat, and even certain acids. It can also be coloured by the addition of minerals, the most popular being a red form of mercury sulphide known evocatively as cinnabar. Little wonder that this material was favoured for domestic items throughout Asia.
