This is a little jewel by an artist who took over from her prematurely deceased husband, and has achieved the same high level on her own. Plump and round, the form lends itself to the butterfly motif. Associated with pollination of crops, the butterflies here are surrounded by water waves and storm cloud borders, all of which combine for very good luck. The detailed designs are scratched out from the stone-polished background, and embellished with accents of color, for emphasis. A delightful meld of form and pattern, to create a charming piece for the collector of miniatures, as well as pottery buffs.
