Kyoyaki hand-painted Phoenix and Dragon yunomi by Unsen
This sumptuous yunomi by the Kyoyaki craftsman Unsen is the result of a
careful process. Starting with it's creation on the potter's wheel, the
cup is then sculpted with a special tool to create the slight indentations
around the bottom. The sometsuke design is subsequently painted on. Finally
the overglaze designs and "aka dami" red background are added.
Redolent of the classic designs of bygone days with its mystical subject
matter and fine details, this expertly hand-painted yunomi is a very special
piece and sure to become a prized possession.
