Chinese Longquan Celadon Plum-Green Linear Penholder by Chen Ai-Ming
The celadon artist Mr. Chen Ai-Ming is the first Zhejinag Arts & Crafts Master who invented the ‘motion-glaze’ in his artworks, i.e. you have to watch the artwork for a while and get the inspiration from it. Each artwork deliveries unique atmosphere he planned before creating it.
This is a hand crafted large penholder in bronze form. The horizontal lines parallel with the mouth rim and base that creates a powerful visual effect. At the edge of lines and rim the color tone are pale white due to glazing against with gravity. Thus makes the contrast between palm-green and pale white a classic compatible within. Even the base Chen Ai-Ming used the so-called slanting-knife skill to craft very detail texture pattern. That is also the reason Chen is called ‘Mr. Detail’ in the field.
The penholder is in perfect condition and Chen Ai-Ming’s signature on base with certificate signed and wooden box form his workshop.
