The third Suigetsu master and what could be called his representative technique, the sandblasting, are able to give birth to various patterns. If the purple clay’s surface is scraped lightly it becomes dark black, and if scraped deeply it becomes gray. The patterns presented by the contrast of these three colors are both refined and elegant, fascinating those who see them.
Morie is a traditional technique that has been passed down from generations in Yokkaichi’s banko-yaki, and consists of opaque coloured painting that cannot be found in other pottery producing areas. Morie, with its high-quality image arrangement, is a refined art, and the combination of its colours is gentle and spectacular. It is Suigetsu’s and Kishiyo’s artistic masterpiece, which embodies two hundred years of history in its flower paintings, and perfected with a contemporary Japanese-style modernism.
