Fine Art Japanese Vase Arita. Artist Fujii Shumei Winter Landscape Born. 1936
Lovely and rare piece with matching storage box.
A superb blue and white porcelain vase. It has a leaf pattern on both front and back. Signed Shumei to base.
Fujii Mr. Aki Fujii’s specialty is the technique of drawing a mountain by simulating the veins of a leaf, called the “leaf technique”, as if it were a complex tree branch.
When young leaves such as magnolia are pressed against unglazed pottery like Japanese paper dyeing and bleeding Kuresu, the veins of the leaves emerge as dark lines, and the mountains are drawn by arranging them.
This technique is used to capture the characteristics of the season, and the Arita landscape itself, which I imagined in my mind, is depicted in the work.
Mr. Akiaki Fujii has won many prizes including the Japan Ceramic Art Exhibition and the Kyushu Yamaguchi Ceramics Exhibition Minister of Education Award.
