This elegant earthenware jar, an impressive 140 cm high, is based on one of the most famous vase shapes in Chinese art: the Meiping. This simple yet voluptuous silhouette dates back over 1000 years. It was long considered a tour de force for potters: its imposing format and the perfection of its volumes demanded exceptional technical mastery!
This refined silhouette has survived the centuries to become one of the great classics of Asian art. And these jars, originally lidded and designed to hold alcohol, have since become highly prized decorative objects for collectors.
In this case, the jar had been accidentally broken into several pieces… The kintsugi restoration, also a feat in itself given its imposing size, involved restoring the object’s coherence, then magnifying the cracks with a 24-carat gold finish. This patient, meticulous craftsmanship makes this jar absolutely unique and allows it to be functional once again.
It can now be used as a vase or as a work of art to display in your home, as a centerpiece of your interior decoration!
For this exceptional piece, shipping costs are not included. They will be calculated after purchase according to your address, and payment will be made directly to the art courier.
Here, the huge size of the jar represented one of the greatest challenges of my career: assembling the pieces and restoring the object’s coherence were technically very difficult. I’m extremely proud of the result, especially the way the pure gold finish plays with the deep blue of the vase.
