Mosaic Eggshell Box
Lacquerware artisan Nantana Sompamitre of Thailand begins crafting this box with carved mango wood. The wood is coated with lacquer then polished in a process that is repeated up to twenty times. Eggshells are cleaned and broken into small pieces that she applies to the lacquered wood. Several more coats of lacquer create a sealed finish and a final sanding and polishing make this intricately patterned box gleam. Fantastic texture and easy earth tones make this box a standout on a mantel or bookshelf.
