Chinese Blue Pate Sur Pate Planter Jardinière with Flowers and Bug



Chinese Pâte-sur-pâte jardinière in cobalt with raised white area decorated with flowers, butterfly and dragonflies. The bottom has three feet and a hole for water to drain through. From Wikipedia: Pâte-sur-pâte is a French term meaning "paste on paste". It is a method of porcelain decoration in which a relief design is created on an unfired, unglazed body, usually with a coloured body, by applying successive layers of (usually) white porcelain slip (liquid clay) with a brush. Once the main shape is built up, it is carved away to give fine detail, before the piece is fired. The work is very painstaking and may take weeks of adding extra layers and allowing them to harden before the next is applied.
