Large Japanese Hand-Painted Imari Decorative Porcelain Vase by Master Artist


This intriguing Japanese Imari Porcelain vase, hand-painted on a beautifully shaped fine Arita porcelain body, featuring three attractive panels of flowers is a signed piece by Kinsai. Kinsai is a highly acclaimed master porcelain artist and recipient of numerous awards for his exceptional porcelain work and his unique and extraordinary signature gold and platinum work on porcelain. This striking piece presents a stunning background of intricate scrolling foliage in dark blue on pure white that creates the perfect setting for three overlapping fan-shaped panels with a detailed honeycomb background in red and white. Each panel is adorned with its own seasonal flowers, which are peonies, wisteria and irises. 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 5-10 firings. This piece comes with a custom-made wooden box signed by the artist.
