A wonderful baluster-shaped studio porcelain vase on a self-pedestal base. A "tea dust" glaze covers its lustrous surface highlighting pockets of softly- gradated colors. A dynamic dragon in rich, burnt red enamel fluidly runs the length of the vase, its body rendered in fine strokes, detailing each scale on its body, sweeping mane and tail. This lovely vase shows clearly the innovative glazing methods for which this great ceramist so admired. The vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Makuzu Kozan rectangular underglaze blue cartouche on base. Height: 8.25" Meiji Period, Japan
