Tenkoku Zogan Tsubo (点刻象嵌壺)
This is the Arita ware crafted by NAKAO, Yasuzumi (中尾恭純).
He curved the dots with sticking the cotton noodle into the half-dried surface.
Painitings were inserted by fine brush and he layered the colors many times.
That's something you can enjoy looking at the cherry petals.
