Piece from Mukozuke Set
The decoration of these sweetmeat dishes suggests a traditional design taken from Momoyama period (sixteenth-century) textile patterns. Rosanjin, who worked centuries later, was the most eclectic of the great modern Japanese potters and tried his hand at a wide variety of traditional ceramic styles. Never slavishly imitative, he simply took inspiration from a style and created his own distinctive pieces, like these traditional side dishes for the kaiseki meal in Japan.
