Japanese Pink Black Silver Leaf Porcelain Cup and Saucer by Master Artist

US$480

About

Extraordinary Japanese contemporary signed porcelain cup and saucer showcasing a stunning cherry blossom pattern in gold, pink and green on a black background. This is the work of a third generation master of a kiln located in the Imari-Arita region of southern Japan who is the descendant of an extended family of prolific porcelain and ceramic artists. The three generations of the Kosan Kiln located in the Imari-Arita region of southern Japan (starting in 19th century,) have been experimenting and perfecting techniques featuring gold foil for seven decades. Inspired by centuries-old kinrande (gold enameled porcelain) styles of Imari, the artists have developed a technique known as haku-yui (braided foils) that combines high purity gold, platinum and silver foils to create a shimmering palette of light and color. Silver foil is used exclusively as a substrate for expressing a wide spectrum of vivid colors. Foils of differing material and color are applied separately and at the rate of “one shade per day” in a process reminiscent of multi-color woodblock printing, implying that the addition of each new shade exponentially increases the time and complexity of production. This attractive cup and saucer comes in a custom made wooden case signed by the artist. Dimensions: Cup: H 2.75 in D 3.5 in Saucer: H .75 in D 5.5 in.
