A lovely pair of matching Tea pots for Chinese steeped tea decorated by the eccentric artist Kai Kozan, each wrapped in a sarasa bag and enclosed in a compartmentalized wooden box signed by the artist. They are roughly 3 inches (7.5 cm) diameter and in excellent condition.
Kai Kozan (1867-1961) was from the land of the literati, Oita prefecture. In 1880 he entered the studio of Hoashi Kyo-u. In 1896 he married Kai Wariko, (daughter of a Honganji Buddhist scholar and graduate of Doshisha Women’s University), and together they helped to establish in 1899 a school for women based on Buddhist principles, and in 1900 BunChuEn JoGakko, what would become Kyoto Womens University and he served as a professor there while maintaining a scholar’s lifestyle throughout his long life.
