Japanese Large Blue Porcelain Vase by Master Artist

$2,950

About

Washizome is a Japanese paper with water-absorbing properties, cut into a shape and size according to the pattern, on an unglazed base made of locro. Cobalt oxide, manganese, iron, kaolin, etc. It is a dyeing technique that soaks and decorates paints using Kure (Kuresu). By repeating the same work twice and three times, you can express subtle shades of color, and you will end up with a gentler impression than writing with a brush.   Exquisite large contemporary decorative porcelain vase, intricately hand painted in cobalt blue underglaze on a beautifully shaped porcelain body, a signed masterpiece by highly acclaimed award-winning master porcelain artist from the historic Imari-Arita region of Japan. In 2016, the British Museum added a work by this artist to its collection of contemporary Japanese porcelain, a large lidded jar in the Imari-Arita polychrome enamel tradition. What sets his work apart is his extremely fine brushwork and unique techniques for incorporating precious metals – gold, platinum and silver – in his creations. This artist's profile is available upon request. This large porcelain vase comes in a custom made wooden case signed by the artist. Dimensions: H 13.5 in, D 12 in. “Fired-on gold,” his 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.
