About

This superb decorative incense burner is actually a large, one-of-a-kind lidded porcelain vase done in a delicate light purple and topped with shi-shi lion handles. This is a masterpiece signed by Sho-un, a highly respected award-winning master porcelain artist in polychrome overglazed enameling.
This decorative lidded incense burner vase sits on an intricately designed Stand and boasts an exceptional design. It has two handles in the shape of shi-shi lions in white and blue. A third lion decorates the top of the lid. Two scalloped openings on opposite sides of the lid indicate that it can be used as an incent burner. The entire body is covered with an arabesque motif interspersed with phoenixes and peonies in shades of blue and hints of gold.
Sho-un calls his style “Sho-un Style,” a refreshing interpretation of traditional polychrome enamels 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 textured feel to flowers that are expressed in bold vibrant colors.
This unique piece comes with a custom-made wooden box with the artist’s signature.
