ARITA - Golden Carp Cup

Regular price $51.00
/

Description

This beautiful cup combines traditional Arita porcelain with a modern design representing a carp painted in gold.

This cup is made following Kinrande Ko-imari style, a porcelain style where gold is applied on the surface and part of the Imari and Arita lineage. This style was already appreciated by European aristocrats in the 18th century.

Nagai Kazumasa, the artist, explains that this is a baroque rococo style of pottery with the type of gorgeous gilded decoration that colored the Renaissance of the Edo Genroku period. In Japan, there is a contrast between the simple beauty of wabi-sabi - a worldview centered on accepting transience and imperfection, prevalent in Japanese art - and the opulent splendor of kabuki theater.

Nagai san explains: "I have tried to bring to life Japan's original opulent energy in my designs. I have tried to come up with a design that is in harmony with modern life, while at the same time passing on tradition".

Diameter: 7.8cm/3.07in

MOMOTA IKIO - In Blue Matcha Bowl

Regular price $204.00
/

Description

An IKKYU exclusivity!

From the renowned porcelain town of Arita in Saga, this is a unique and beautiful matcha bowl ideal for enjoying with an exquisite flow of blue-white porcelain unique to the artist. Its color will remind you of the sea off the coast of Kyushu island on a summer day.

The sensory contrast between the blue glaze and white foot is extraordinary. The harmony of the partial glaze and the beauty of the blank space gives Momota san’s works a unique charm. Its perfect finish makes it hard to believe that it is handmade. Blue-white porcelain is made using a glaze containing little iron that yields a bluish tint when applied to unglazed pottery.

This technique was originally created in China. Part of the “Blue Sea” collection created exclusively for IKKYU by Momota Aiko san, including a gyokuro cup, a sencha cup and a matcha bowl.

Because of the incredible skills needed to make this beautiful collection, it takes about six to eight weeks to make three bowls. Please contact us to place a pre-order in case of momentary unavailability.
