Japanese Tall Kutani Hand-Painted Decorative Porcelain Vase by Master Artist



A contemporary large Japanese Kutani hand-painted porcelain vase with a unique interpretation of giraffes. This is part of a series of pieces featuring the animals of the African savannah. Depicted here are giraffes looking skyward and earthward with humanlike eyes that convey an eerie sense of self-awareness. The artist starts each work with the eyes that leads him to the whole design. Having started his career in the venerable tradition of old Kutani porcelain, the artist faithfully draws on at least one of the prime Kutani colors of yellow, green, red, blue and purple in each of his work. The artist's profile is available upon request. This hand-painted porcelain vase comes in a custom-made wooden box signed by the artist.
