Dancing Bend / Dancing Bend

Dancing Bend

Traditionally, the process of making a lacquerware can be divided into three steps. In this work, instead of using traditional material as the object, the creator uses clothes to create an object. Layers of clothes and lacquer are interlaced and hardened to become a flat board. Such board of clothes can be bent and cut easily. These qualities are employed in the work “Dancing Bend” to create its beautiful curves. This innovation exempts not only the need for an extra mold from FRP when doing curves, but also the worry of pollution. All materials can be decomposed naturally and is environmentally-friendly.
