Rinpa Style Ume Seikanji Ware Chawan

The Seikanji kiln is part of the lineage of ceramics in Kyoto done by Ninsei and the Rinpa Artists including Ogata Kenzan. The current head of the Seikanji Kiln, Sugita Shohei produces vibrant yet subtle wares and have been selected by the 15th Sen Soshitsu, Daisosho, Houunsai. Additionally, the kiln retains the mission of preserving the old Kiyomizu wares and produces bowls utilizing the motifs seen in the Rinpa School, thus the popularity has been great in the last few decades.

The bowl is utilizing a motif seen on the folding screens done by Ogata Korin and the Rinpa School the white specks are the snow that is accumulating on the plum branches.

Judging from the motif of the bowl, the bowl can be used during the winter season (Haya ume for December, Ume for January or February). The bowl is sealed on the bottom saying Seikanji.

Condition: The bowl appears to have been used slightly but not enough to leave stains. There is no damage, chips, or wear on the piece. Sadly the box does not come with an original tomobako as it should have, but is perfect for personal use.
