Suiseiji Kokumon Kaki (翠青磁刻文花器)
This is the ceramic crafted by KUMAMOTO, Yoshihiro (熊本義泰).
He made the shape by throwing on the potter's wheel.
He uses the skill called "katakiribori" which means engraving the pattern's outline.
He created the green color with following Chinese Song celadon fired in the Yoshuyo kiln.
Height : 40 cm
Diameter : 23.8 cm
Having trained in Kyoto, Kumamoto returned to his hometown and built the pottery in Kashima-shi. He found enlightened charm to Chinese Seiji and devotes himself to create original celadon today.
