Yūrikinsai Peony Arabesque
Yurikinsai is not a painting technique, but rather a method of applying gold-leaf onto porcelain.
The process begins by taking gold-leaf of various sizes and thickness, and layering them to create different patterns. A clear glaze is then applied before the item is fired and thus, cpmpleted. As simple as this may seem, it is actually an extremely tedious and repetitive process that only master artisans are able to successfully accomplish.
