The undulating walls of this vase transform a traditional, thin-necked vase into a uniquely captivating work. As is typical to Dalpayrat’s mature oeuvre, the glaze is mostly a dark burgundy. The entire surface of the work, however, is mottled with bright shocks of oxidized blue, teal, and green contrasting against the more subdued red. Both these eye-catching blue-colored areas and the vase’s visual quotation of the tiered towers of East Asia give it the name Turquoise Pagoda.
