Kosen Kiln Medaka Rice Fish Chrysanthemum Imari Nabeshima Ware Sauce Plate
Enjoy the elegant design of a chrysanthemum with the natural blue-green luster of celadon in this stylish sauce plate from Kosen Kiln.
With its translucent glaze on the blue-jade hue of celadon, a tranquil atmosphere emanates from its glossy exterior, like the calm surface of a glistening pond. Adorning the surface of the sauce plate are Medaka rice fishes which are depicted with such realism that they look as though they are actually suspended in water. Each fish is hand painted using brushes of differing thickness to draw the detailed designs. Three small dots give movement to the fish and add a delicate touch to the design. One can almost feel the fish gracefully swimming in a pond with their slightly curved tails.
This sauce plate is the perfect size for plating various types of sauces and condiments. Serve small sweets alongside a cup of Japanese tea or coffee. Or use it to present small appetizers to start a meal or for side dishes in a Japanese-style meal.
The Medaka Rice Fish series also includes plates and bowls that can be coordinated with this sauce plate to give your tabletop a unified theme. This sauce plate is set in a durable paper box labeled with the name of the kiln on Washi paper making it a perfect item as a gift.
Nabeshima Kosen Kiln specializes in products that use three techniques that are characteristic of Nabeshima ware: Iro-Nabeshima, Sometsuke, and celadon. Created by years of research, Kosen Kiln developed a crystal clear, jade-colored celadon glaze of Nabeshima celadon. The company's founder, Tameo Kawasoe, has long studied celadon porcelain with a strong desire to make Nabeshima celadon ware available to as many people as possible.
The current third generation, Takahiko Kawasoe, has a vision of "establishing Nabeshima culture" and began research and development of celadon with a different perspective from that of his grandfather.

Imari Nabeshima Ware
Nabeshima ware is a porcelain ware produced by the Nabeshima domain kiln, which was established in 1628 by 31 selected potters in the Arita and Imari areas (Saga Prefecture) as a project directly managed by the Saga Nabeshima domain in the early Edo period.
For about 250 years until the abolition of the domain in 1871, the Nabeshima ware, which could only be used by shoguns and feudal lords, continued to produce porcelain masterpieces such as "Iro-Nabeshima (colored Nabeshima)", "Sometsuke" and celadon porcelain, and others as masterpieces of the finest quality. Later, the kilns became private kilns, and new potters joined to create the present Imari Nabeshima ware.
