He uses lacquer to repair broken porcelain and to create lacquerware.

Also, he experiments on the production of various lacquers. "I feel so pleased to return to my hometown and do something I am interested in," said Wu.

He is dedicated to revive the ancient art that has almost been forgotten in China.

Wu Rongqiang repairs a celadon ware with lacquer at his studio in Niutouling Village, Longquan City of east China's Zhejiang Province, Jan. 15, 2019.
