Three-Piece Red Blue Porcelain Incense Burner by Japanese Master Artist

US$4,500

About

Exquisite three-piece porcelain decorative incense burner/vessel, intricately hand-painted on a beautifully crafted porcelain body, is a signed masterpiece by widely respected award-winning Japanese master porcelain artist in Imari-Arita tradition. In 2016, the British Museum added a work by Fujii Tadashi to its collection of contemporary Japanese porcelain, a large lidded jar in the Imari-Arita polychrome enamel tradition. This artist is the recipient of numerous awards for his exceptional porcelain work and his unique signature gold and platinum work on porcelain. This remarkable lidded piece, a three-piece decorative incense burner is diagonally divided into two spheres, one in iron-red and the other in blue background, both showcasing a subtle array of hues. The whole body of the vase is decorated with pine trees in blue and green, and cranes in flight. Gilded details provide an additional dimension to the striking elegance of this piece. The handles with a geometric pattern add to the elegance of this remarkable piece. The lid is adorned with a shishi lion in white porcelain. This piece comes with a custom-made wooden case signed by the artist. Dimensions: H 13 in, W 10.5 in, D 8 in “Fired-on gold,” Tadashi’s signature style highlights unique techniques for incorporating gold and platinum into the hand painting and multiple firing processes that yield a stunningly opulent look. The polychrome overglaze is fired at 800 degrees, followed by the application of gold and platinum that are fired at slightly lower temperature to maintain the luster of the precious metals. As a result, a single piece may undergo as many as 5-10 firings.
