Behavior of Water in Oriental Lacquers
In the orient, various kinds of lacquer trees are grown, Thus vernicifera (China, Korea and Japan), Rhus succedanea (Vietnam and Formosa) and Melanorhoea usitate (Burma and Tailand). Of these, the tree, Rhus vernicifera gives the best quality sap as a material for coatings which has been used in China for thousands of years. The lacquer wares characteristic of Korean and Japanese culture are also based on the same sap as in China.
