What was happening when the Longquan celadon artist visited Jizhou in Jiangxi Province of China?
In the long weekend of Labor’s Day national holiday of early May 2005, the Longquan celadon artist Mr. Lu , Wei-Sun and his students was invited by Jizhou Ceramics Research Institute in the region of Ji’an, about 230 kilometers south-west of world-famous Jingdezhen. During his stay Lu, Wei-Sun potted this large foliated bowl and tried the traditional Jizhou glaze of his first time.
Why this bowl so unique for collector who appreciates black glaze Jizhou wares? The form of mouth rim and glaze effect!
The full range of Jizhou bowls included Chinese tea bowl (similar with Japanese Chawan) and other daily wares. It’s extremely rare use foliated skill to decorate the mouth rim though the skill was very mature in Longquan celadon decorative design. Moreover Lu, Wei-Sun employed contemporary glaze-painting to create vivid, cursive designs of pattern inside the bowl. This is also a major break-through to traditional ‘tortoiseshell’ glaze and wax-resist designs of papercut.
Mouth Rim Diameter: 17cm
