Inspired by the shape and ornamental motifs of Pekinese Jug (discontinued in 1986), Lladr artists are now presenting two new decorative creations with a notable use of red and blue matched with platinum luster. In addition to the modifications in the decoration, in this piece the handles on the vases have been transformed into dragons, a mythological creature which is a symbol of power, strength and good luck, especially in oriental cultures. In fact, it is widely believed to be the supreme being among all creatures and is one of the most frequently depicted. Since time immemorial, this legendary divine creature has been attributed with the power to ward off evil spirits, to protect the innocent and to safeguard all those under its sign, the five claws tell us that these are imperial dragons. The wooden bases designed for the vases, help to set off the beauty of the pieces while adding to their overall oriental charm.
The ornamentation with floral motifs is delicately worked to enhance each and every one of the details. The decoration plays with contrasts between glazed, matte and satin finishes, both in the platinum lusters as well as the enamels. Though they are two different versions, they share a sense of unity thanks to the use of the same color range in the two pieces.
