Description

The colorful blossoms strewn across our pretty watch are adapted from a Ninsei-style mukōzuke (serving container) in the Museums collection. The original stoneware vessel with overglaze enamels was produced in Japan during the Meiji period (18681912). Ninsei-style refers to the innovative ceramics of Nonomura Ninsei (Japanese, active ca. 164694), considered the father of kyōyaki, a type of beautiful Kyoto pottery. His expressive wares have strongly influenced succeeding generations of Kyoto potters, as seen in the mukōzuke on which this design is based.
