Sometsuke Irokomon Tsubo (染付色小文壷)
This is the Arita ware crafted by NAKAO, Ryuzumi (中尾龍純).
He created the patterns with a mass of colored dots.
To add the color, he used each pigment called irogosu.

Diameter : 16 cm
He pursues the beauty of sometsuke. That’s pretty impressive to paint the entire surface of the vessel with auspicious patterns.
