Akaneiro

EUR 100.00

An exquisite painting of a traditional tea bowl 'chawan' ,  inspired by the Japanese artform kintsugi: repair of ceramics using pure gold . The main red colour has been underpainted with orange and yellow tones. The textured pattern is revealed using the sgraffito technique.


From my Precious Bowls series. I sometimes name these bowls with the Japanese word for the main colour or feeling of the piece. 'Akaneiro' means madder - the plant from which red pigments are made.


Mixed media:

    pigment ( colour ) suspended in beeswax

    gold leaf (23carat - It's as pure as you can get)

    cold wax method

    wax encaustic


110 x 110mm


Beeswax gives colour a beautiful translucence making it seem as if light glows from within the painting.


Painted on Fabriano (300gsm 100% cotton paper) with my classic torn edge.


My signature is etched onto gold in the bottom right of the painting.
