Gangwon-do Intangible Cultural Property No. 11-4 Saengchiljang +
||Intangible Cultural Property
Saengchiljang is a craftsman who paints woodware with raw lacquer. Painting wood with high quality raw paint makes it black at first, but as time goes by, the original pattern slowly appears, and not only does the gloss come alive but also changes beautifully as time goes by, so raw lacquer has long been widely used. However, as the lacquer industry has declined in recent years, the number of lacquer techniques has decreased significantly.
Lee Don-ho, the holder of the painting, is a craftsman who has been painting raw lacquer since 1977, and has been taught traditional techniques and functions by Korean lacquer masters such as Shin Jung-hyun (Seoul Intangible Cultural Property No. 1 raw lacquer paste) and Lee Seong-gu.
