Large Mashiko Dish with Motif of Fish

A rare Mashiko plate with an impression of a fish set in the center. The color of the dish, glaze used is often seen in traditional Mashiko wares evoking the mingei spirit. The dish is thought to be a set of 3 dishes and the three were separated. Also, typically with Mashiko wares, either the ware contains no motifs and the glazes create interesting patterns on the wares or the wares contains painted designs or embossed geometric patterns. However, a method often used by fishing enthusiasts known as gyotaku, where one side of the fish is painted with black sumi ink and a piece of paper is placed on top to create an impressed reflection of the fish, is used. This method is rarely used in any ceramic art.
