Elegantly potted with a flared mouth, a sturdy neck, a sloping shoulder and a fuller bulging belly, the goose-neck vase is supported on a high ring foot, rising up with vitality and grace. It is fully applied with sky blue glaze, dipped with purple splashes like traditional ink painting: with abstract cursive lines, shadings and blending, as well as hollow strokes. The foot ring and the inner foot bottom are left unglazed to expose its grey biscuit, as well as the trim trails.

The goose-neck vase is similar to the Yuhuchun vase and long-neck vase, only with slight differences. The long-neck vase is with slimmer and straight neck, as well as a straight mouth; and Yuhuchun vase is built with a higher belly, sloping shoulder and shorter neck, and as flared mouth.
