Hand-sculpted by an artisan from China's Jiangxi province, this contemporary standing vase pays colorful tribute to the time-honored style of wucai ware. Translated as “five-color,” wucai was an innovation of the Ming dynasty that employed several enamel-like glazes to create brilliantly colored ceramics. A colorful departure from traditional blue-and-white porcelain, this vase is decorated with a lively scene of fish swimming amid ocean fauna. The whimsical design offers blessings of wealth, abundance, and the contented harmony of a fish in water.
