About

Highly collectible very large contemporary porcelain decorative bowl/centerpiece, an exhibition piece in red and dimpled gold, an outstanding masterpiece by widely respected award-winning Japanese master porcelain artist in the Imari-Arita style. In 2016, the British Museum added a work by this artist to its collection of contemporary Japanese porcelain in the Imari-Arita polychrome enamel tradition. The piece depicts the traditional “Sho-Chiku-Bai” or “Three Friends of Winter” motif consisting of pine, bamboo and plum, commonly used in New Year’s decorations in Japanese homes. The pine tree symbolizes strength, bamboo symbolizes longevity, and the plum tree in its wintry bloom represents beauty and hopeful anticipation. The exceptional shape, the striking dimples in high purity gold and the exquisite hand-paintings make this a truly memorable piece. This breathtaking gilded and hand painted decorative porcelain centerpiece showcases seamless fish scale pattern expressed in iron-red and intricate gold details decorates the outer surface of this stunningly shaped piece, while the inner surface exhibits striking gilded dimples. Fan-shaped panels with floral designs are gracefully positioned on both the inner and outer surfaces to represent different seasons. In the dimpling process, the unfired porcelain shell is impressed with hundreds of dimples, to which gold (or platinum) is applied at the final stage of production. The dimples are designed to accentuate the luster of the precious metals by varying the thickness of application and allowing the cratering to convey a sense of depth. The virtuoso techniques and special care that have been put into creating this bowl make it a truly exceptional and memorable piece. This artist is a highly acclaimed master porcelain artist and recipient of numerous awards for his exceptional porcelain work and his unique gold and platinum work on porcelain. His 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 over glaze 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. The artist's profile is available upon request. This exquisite massive hand painted porcelain centerpiece comes in a custom made wooden case signed by the artist. Dimensions: H 7.5 in D 16.5 in
