Ni-sai Vase by Sawada Hiroyuki
For over 35 years, Sawada Hiroyuki has specialized in the production of ceramic ware made especially for tea ceremony. An avid practitioner himself, he finds particular inspiration in works from the 16th century and classical Chinese ceramics.
This striking vase is reminiscent of the type which were acquired from China and highly regarded by, and traded among, the Japanese nobility. And for centuries, they would grace the imperial courts in Kyoto and Tokyo. It is done in a copper-based glaze, called ni-sai, and accented with iron brushwork.
A wooden presentation box will be custom made to order and signed by the artist. Delivery time for this item is 2 weeks.
