  • Thanks to Veronica for taking the time to talk with us. We applaud her for helping keep this amazing artistic tradition alive using the original techniques that were almost lost. We hope that her goal of establishing a larger studio and transferring these techniques back to a new generation of local apprentices will help pave the road to helping the local people here in Bagan regain a core piece of their heritage.
  • I went to Bagan two months ago and had the chance to discover this amazing workshop. The owner, Veronica Gritsenko, was a extraordinary meeting. She welcomed us, explained all the lacquerware process and invited us in her universe. I visited a lot of shops but her products were different, with a lot of details and colors, in a wonderful animal world. I felt like a I was with an old friend, who wanted to really show me her work and it was a nice feeling. I advise all travelers visiting Bagan to take the time to visit this beautiful workshop and meet this great woman, which is full of enthusiasm and passion for Burmese culture, especially lacquerware techniques. I will return there with great pleasure!
