Enamel on metal, Moriage technique

Object Description
The vase is decorated with a pale blue-green ground over which red, purple, and white poppies twine amidst deep green foliage. The piece was created in the Moriage technique, which is a high relief enamel technique.

Only three major artists produced the Moriage technique: Ando Jubei, Hattori Tadasaburo and Kumeno Teitaro. Ando Jubei marketed the technique to the Western world, winning recognition for it with the award of world exposition medals. The technique was most challenging due to the lack of control that was integral to the process. There were no wires to hold the enamel during the firing process, allowing the possibility of the enamel flowing beyond the desired boundaries. Interestingly, the processes used to create cloisonne pieces in the Moriage technique are unknown.
