Saishoku Zogan Mentori Kaki (彩色象嵌面取花器)
This is the Arita ware crafted by NAKAO, Yasuzumi (中尾恭純).
He used the small knife to engrave cutting patterns on the soft suraface and buried paintings into it.
That's the vase which requires very precise and detailed handwork.
Height : 31.5 cm

NAKAO is one of the masters of white porcelain. He has produced original inlay with truly precise handwork.
