Vase Raku Kawasemi jade, pièce unique
Flower vase signed Mami KANNO.
Kawasemi 翡翠, this is jade, a precious stone from Asia known to bring luck.
The pretty crackle of the Raku enchants the subtle green color of the enamel.
“Happiness in chance”. Raku is the result of an enamelling technique developed in the 16th century in Japan. From then on, the raku technique gradually sparked a craze for its freedom of expression and its unique character. According to Mami, Raku expresses the ephemerality of life. Putting it in the oven will give the piece its definitive uniqueness. The cracks in the enamel give a subtle beauty and a nice contrast to the black color. This vase has a predominantly smooth texture but rich in roughness and materials, typical of Mami's art, raw and sophisticated at the same time.> Your touch, brings to life this sumptuous masterpiece by Mami Kanno.
