Description

A lovely sométsuké tea set by Kyoto-based ceramic artist Kanzan Shigeta.

The eighth in a long, unbroken lineage of Kanzan ceramic artists, he apprenticed under his father, Kanzan Denshichi VII, learning how to master the colorful iro-é brushwork and intricate overglaze patterns that have helped preserve the Kanzan appellation in Japan for over a century.

Kanzan excels in a highly sculpted rendition of mentori forming, where leather-hard clay is cut away in facets, and his work is characterized by traditional Japanese motifs or arabesques done in cobalt blue sométsuké overglazes and presented to the viewer three-dimensionally on skillfully formed porcelain pieces.
