About

This exquisite rotund shape gilded and dimpled porcelain vase decorated with cherry blossoms in iron red is by Kinsai, a widely respected master porcelain artist in Imari-Arita style.
In the dimpling process the unfired porcelain shell is impressed with hundreds of dimples, to which gold and platinum are applied at the final stage of production. The dimples are designed to accentuate the luster of the precious metals by varying the thickness of application and allowing the cratering to convey a sense of depth. The stunning shape, the dimples and the striking cherry blossoms in red-iron appearing in clusters throughout the vase, make it a truly memorable piece.
Kinsai is a highly acclaimed master porcelain artist and the recipient of numerous awards for his exceptional porcelain work and his unique gold and platinum work on porcelain. Kinsai literally means “fired-on gold.” The name 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 five-ten firings.
This piece comes with a custom-made wooden box signed by the artist.
