Japanese Massive Three-Piece Blue Imari Lidded Temple Jar by Master Artist, 2016


Unique extraordinary three-piece lidded Imari Porcelain temple jar, a contemporary masterpiece by highly acclaimed award-winning Japanese master porcelain artist of the Imari-Arita region of Japan. This master artist has perfected the polychrome overglaze technique to create porcelain pieces with stunning colors. He is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards for his extraordinary porcelain work and his contributions to this centuries old art. His signature style is a refreshing interpretation of traditional polychrome overglaze enameling techniques and motifs decorating porcelain over clear glaze. Inspired by nature, he creates a dramatic landscape on porcelain with flowers coming alive. His painstaking “drip painting” technique is designed to bring a subtly raised, three-dimensional feel to motifs that are expressed in bold vibrant colors. His profile is available upon request. The three softly angled parts (base, body and lid) of this massive piece are carefully crafted to achieve exact fit and a continuous flow of hand painted motifs. The entire body of this exceptional piece provides a stunning porcelain canvas for portraying numerous cranes in various stages of flight and occasional pine branches set against an elegantly detailed background of a powerful sea of waves presented in varying hues of blue underglaze. This beautifully shaped lid with flat rim reiterates the soft angles of the body, and is topped by a shishi lion striking a vigilant pose. This exquisite hand painted porcelain piece comes in a custom made wooden box signed by the artist. Dimensions: H 26.5 in D 10.5 in.
