Geppaku Celadon Saké Cup by Kamada Kōji
Known as the fair maiden of Chinese ceramics, celadon, like tenmoku, was born in the Song Dynasty (960-1270). Both techniques rely upon iron oxide to define their character, and both are equally renowned for their difficulty. So it was only natural that ceramic artist Kamada Kōji would heed the call of the maiden and focus his talents on tenmoku's fairer cousin.
Kamada proudly introduces this luminous celadon saké cup. It was born from the kiln imbued with a soothing "moon white", or geppaku in Japanese. A gem for any celadon collection.
Kamada Kōji's tenmoku works are held in private collections around the world and, in 2005, were acquired by New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art for display in their Asian Art collection.
