For the "Limited Edition 2019" collection antique Japanese screens and wall paintings are the inspiration for this majestic crane artwork to a group of classic lidded vases designed in 1869 and 1730, as well as to a wall dish from 1890. The design is created in a series of stages and is extremely demanding for the porcelain painters. First, the highly intricate feathers are applied in sepia. Then the black tail feathers and grey shading in the wings is painted on. After the first decorative firing, gold and platinum accents are applied, achieving their characteristic brilliance in an additional firing.
