About

This extraordinary tall vase, a masterpiece with mysterious etchings features a patchwork of silver foils tinted in five shades of red, meticulously positioned using lacquer as an adhesive and sealed to the vase in a low-temperature firing process. The combination of five shades of red expressed on a complicatedly etched surface creates an unpredictable and every shifting display of light and color. The three generations of the Kosan Kiln located in the Imari-Arita region of southern Japan have been experimenting and perfecting techniques featuring gold foil for seven decades. Inspired by centuries-old kinrande (gold enameled porcelain) styles of Imari, the artists have developed a technique known as haku- yui (braided foils) that combines gold, platinum and silver foils to create a shimmering palette of light and color. Silver foil is used exclusively as a substrate for expressing a wide spectrum of vivid colors. Foils of differing material and color are applied separately and at the rate of “one shade per day” in a process reminiscent of multi-color woodblock printing, implying that the addition of each new shade exponentially increases the time and complexity of production. This mesmerizing piece comes in a custom made wooden case signed by the artist. Dimensions: H 12 in D 6 in.
