|Celadon ceramics, usually thought of as green, are produced in Thailand in this gorgeous shade of blue as well as in many shades of green. The term "celadon" refers to the fine crackles on the surface of ceramics rather than color, and for this vase Thai potters combined cobalt with traditional celadon firing techniques for a stunning result. A lotus leaf pattern encircles the shoulder, and a broad band of loosely sketched flowers decorates the mid-section. The base is signed by the potter. This piece, made during the mid-1990s, is in perfect condition. Dimensions: height 11-1/2" (29 cm), diameter 8" (20 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM|
