When we first saw these vases we assumed them to be traditional early 20th century porcelains. On further investigation we found them to be rough hewn ceramics that an inspired soul tested their own methods on. They are painted with a "sang-de-beouf" field with phoenix and peony imagery on top. The result is a unique pair of jars that reference thousands of years of Chinese ceramic mastery. The combination of phoenix and peonies is a blessing of virtue, peace and benevolence. The combination of materials, techniques, and imagery are an absolutely unique folk art find in our 20 years of collecting.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
