Dating from Meiji.
The 4th generation Kiyomizu Rokubei(1848-1920)work.

The kyo-yaki earthenware bowl is called "mukouzuke" which is a side dish(not rice or soup) at a Japanese style banquet.

Kiyomizu Rokubei is one of the head families of Kyoto ceramic ware.
The first generation Kiyomizu Rokubei is started to Kyoto Gojo-zaka in the second half of Edo.
A style is left to each family heads' creativity.
From generation to generation, just a style or not a form ...
