DESCRIPTION

Published in Financial Times, Trish Lorenz says in her article about Aldo’s work with Urushi and his upcoming exhibition at Atelier Courbet: “The Art of Urushi lacquering is slow, laborious, repetitive and risky as there is no way to erase mistakes.” 

 

The centuries-old Japanese lacquer, Urushi envelops objects or furniture pieces with a soft and yet extremely resistant skin. The lacquer must be perfectly stretched onto the surface intensifying and bringing depth to its color.  

Aldo has developed work layered with a pure Urushi finish since 2005. “I fell in love with Urushi on my first encounter with it, and I think I will keep working with it for the rest of my life,” says Bakker. “I like the fact that it is 100 per cent natural and ages beautifully and has a real depth and quality of surface and color. Even very new and contemporary pieces have a sense of maturity and age to them.”
