Large Imari Gilded Hand-Painted Porcelain Vase by Japanese Master Artist, 2017

About

Dramatic Japanese contemporary decorative porcelain vase, intricately gilded and hand-painted on a beautifully shaped large body in green, a signed masterpiece by a Japanese master porcelain artist. Working in the historic Imari-Arita region of southern Japan, this artist is a highly acclaimed master porcelain artist and recipient of numerous awards. 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 striking piece depicts a gaggle of mallard ducks in a pond bordered by purple, red and blue irises in full bloom. The ducks have an extensive gold details that maximize the impact of the stunning raised enameling of the iris blossoms and the whirlpool patterns done in gold. The illusion of a peaceful pond in the early days of summer is completed with the vase’s lotus-blossom shaped lip that rises above the water with pristine beauty. “Fired-on gold,” the artist's 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. This piece comes in a custom-made wooden box signed by the artist. Dimensions: H 13.25 in D 12 in
