Description

An intricately formed sométsuké green tea cup by Kyoto-based ceramic artist Kanzan Shigeta.  It is sure to become a tea lover's closely guarded treasure.

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

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