Arita Porcelain Lab Yazaemon "Somenishiki" Rock Flower Bird Flower Vase
This vase is a beautifully decorated item reflecting the high-quality craftsmanship handed down for generations within Arita Porcelain Lab's long history. The technique displayed in this bowl is called "somenishiki" where the vase is first glazed with white and blue patterns and then is further decorated with detailed hand painted drawings.
As one the largest vases within the collection, this vase stands as a piece of art on its own: the colorfully designed flowers, the delicately painted bird feathers and the bottom and the top decorated with gold leaf and floral patterns.
This vase will hold bold and big flowers such as lilies shown in the photo. But needless to say, this vase would make a great piece to place on a side table in your entrance or hallway. Surprise a friend or neighbor with this beautiful vase as a housewarming gift.

ABOUT ARITA WARE
Arita Ware, made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture, is the oldest porcelain production area in Japan's history. Arita porcelain is characterized by its translucent white porcelain surface, dyeing using "Gosu" (indigo pigment), and gorgeous red painting using glassy overglaze pigments (red, green, yellow, purple, and blue). The pottery is highly durable and is produced in a wide variety of styles, from fine art to daily necessities. It was exported to Europe, where it was prized as fine art and called "white gold".
Arita Ware is also a prestigious brand that is admired by ceramicists from other regions as a representative porcelain production area.
