Hard Bodies: Contemporary Japanese Lacquer Sculpture

Clip: Season 7 | 5m 1s

We visit the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach as they present Hard Bodies: Contemporary Japanese Lacquer Sculpture. Since the Neolithic era, artisans have made cups and other functional items from the lacquer tree. But since the late 80’s this tradition has been challenged as contemporary lacquer artists push the medium into new directions.
