Japanese Hand-Glazed Turquoise Porcelain Cup and Saucer by Master Artist

About

Unique contemporary Japanese hand-glazed porcelain cup and saucer in turquoise, a signed masterpiece by widely respected award-winning master porcelain artist in "Yohen" technique of the Imari-Arita region of Japan handsomely proportioned cup and saucer showcasing one of the artist’s signature colors. This cup and saucer showcases a glazing technique called yuteki tenmoku the kiln is known for, where silvery white, brown, green, purple or blue crystals emerge like floating oil droplets on the background of a jet-black glaze. This artist is a master of the Yohen technique, roughly translated as “alchemy of the kiln,” in which minute variations in closely-guarded glaze recipes and kiln temperatures produce a unique palette of hues and patterns manifested in subtle but awe-inspiring gradations of color. The beautiful gradations that the artist creates are the result of layers of glazes that fuse together in the kiln. This artist relies on his experience as well as science to calculate the temperature of the kiln and the combination of metals and minerals in different glazes. The artist combines a number of techniques for applying the glaze, including dipping, painting and spraying. One of the artist’s most notable signature gradation patterns is the Galaxy, which stunningly evokes millions of stars glowing faintly in distant skies. This attractive porcelain cup and saucer comes in a custom-made wooden box. Dimensions: Cup H 2.5 in D 3 in Saucer D 6.5 in.   This unique cup and saucer collection comes in a mesmerizing rainbow of colors. Each piece comes in a signed custom-made wooden box. Orders of a single piece or more pieces in a single color or a combination of colors are all welcomed. Sets of cups and saucers in any numbers can come in a single custom-made wooden box, if desired.The choice is yours, select the number of pieces and the color(s).
