"Ginsai" matcha chawan by Kitamura Toshio - pink

A charming chawan in shades of pink and light grey.The soft shape is given added warmth by the use of bright pink while the underlaid silver foil adds a shimmering iridescence. A romantic,feminine piece from a noted artist.

The "ginsai" technique from Kutani is currently attracting a great deal of attention in the ceramic world because of its simple yet beautiful finish. Silver foil is attached to the porcelain base in a slightly overlapping pattern and fired. The pieces are then coated with glaze and fired again. Each piece bears its own unique pattern and the combination of the glistening silver and glaze result in shimmering pieces which beautifully reflect the light.


Kutani artist Kitamura Toshio has won numerous awards and has exhibited at many prestigious exhibitions in Japan.
