<i>Shonzui</i> by Miyagawa Kozai

Rare, Distinguished Pieces of Inestimable Cultural Value

The revival of a legend

Delicately hand-drawn in pristine blue, each Shonzui* Sake Cup is decorated with classically defined stylistic representations of peasants, nautical scenes and landscapes in a style of white porcelain founded towards the end of China’s Ming Dynasty (1368~1644).

The Ming Dynasty was a period of great innovation in the field of ceramics. Japanese potters, heavily influenced by what was happening, added their own flavor to these techniques, making them their own. Though kilns throughout the country produced versions of Shonzui Porcelain at the time, the extraordinary pieces created at the Makuzu Kiln by the legendary master, Miyagawa Kozan, remain the most highly regarded.

Unashamedly expensive, in a class of its own

Created at the rate of just one-per-day by Miyagawa Kozai, the 6th generation head of the Makuzu kiln, using techniques perfected by the legendary master, Miyagawa Kozan (1842 - 1916), each revival Shonzui Sake Cup is truly a remarkable work of art.

Miyagawa (Makuzu) Kozan

The astonishingly versatile and accomplished Meiji potter, Makuzu Kozan (1842 - 1916), is acclaimed as one of the greatest ceramic artists of the Meiji period (1868-1912). After the opening of Japan to the West in the mid-nineteenth century, the Meiji period was a time of tumultuous change for Japanese society. Makuzu-yaki’s shift from its origins in a traditional workshop in Kyoto to maturity in a prolific factory in the newly opened port of Yokohama, is part of the story. Kozan's ability to cater to the demands of a new Western export market and to incorporate new Western glaze techniques led to enormous success, both in Japan and abroad. Accolade after accolade followed the appearance of his work at international exhibitions including Expos in Paris and Sydney, and World Expos in both Philadelphia and St. Louis. The legendary master was appointed an artist to the Japanese Imperial household in 1882; the absolute pinnacle of the world of pottery at the time.

*Shonzui refers to good luck, auspiciousness
