Exciting times ahead Our sales facility is currently being established and it is hoped that within the next couple of months, we will be open for viewings for collectors from the Illawarra and Sydney regions. Our business remains primarily focused on Burmese artefacts and religious symbols, however, due to the recent popularity of Burma by western tourists, good quality and genuine artefacts are becoming very rare and difficult to source! So, if you have been able to obtain a collection of your own, hold onto them as they are becoming unique treasures!! I am regularly visiting Burma at least annually to keep in touch with developments, seek out fine and unusual products, and of course visit the many friends I have made in Yangon and Bagan. Although increased tourism may not be so good for obtaining unique artworks, we are very excited for the Burmese people as their country is under significant development, meaning they are moving in a direction that is allowing all persons to enjoy an improved quality of life.
There seems to be a problem serving the request at this time. Skip to main content. Filter 1.
Bagan is where most Burmese Lacquer ware is produced as it is located near the Shan State, where resin bearing trees grow Thitsi trees , softwood and bamboo are easily available - along the Ayeyarwady River. The techniques of making lacquer ware have been handed down, generation by generation in the villages surrounding Bagan. There remain today, instructors in the craft, where a family member may work in an unpaid apprenticeship — to keep the art and culture alive. Artwork on the lacquer ware is either painted or etched in between the many layers of lacquer. The Hsun ok is the most varied of all the containers — ranging from a bamboo frame with plain red or black lacquer to the very ornate gold, gilded and jewelled style.
