|STORY BEHIND THE CERAMIC
Vintage japanese porcelain yunomi with imprinted motives of auspicious plants and animals.
The 型紙絵付け/Katagamiezuke/Stamp-picture-imprinting method was first used in the middle of the Edo period and became more and more popular corresponding with the higher tea consumption of the general Japanese public. Ceramics of this kind were soon produced in different kilns all over the country because of it's lower amount of labor through printing. Until full mechanization after WW2 the more detailed parts were still handpainted though, which gives the print some human warmth.
