Restoration Report on the Chosun Dynasty Lacquered Wares Inlaid with Mother-of-Pearl
Young Hee Yi
The essential point to be considered when restoring lacquered ware is to know its materials and properties, and prior studios from the conservational and scientific examination is the way to achieve it. Recently, to get a close examination of its materials and methods involved in lacquered ware making, cross section microscope studies are being applied. Cross section microscope studies shows that lacquering process has been simplified and that bone and earth substances have been added to the materials, a method also traced from the lacquered wooden coffin excavated from the 'Nak Rang Tomb' and by the lacquered wares of the 'Kyongjoo An Ap' areas. The significance of this Chosun Dynasty lacquered wares's inlaid with mother-of pearl restoration can be found in that we have been able to harmonize the very traditional and the very modern scientific method of our time and that we were able to launch a step forward from using only the synthetics to open up a new range of natural materials such as lacquers, bone and earth substances, oxhide-glue and nacres and of referring to the traditional methods.
