Description

Yabu Meizan was considered as one of the greatest ceramic artists of Japan during the 19th and 20th century. He was born in Osaka in 1853 and studied painting techniques on ceramics in Tokyo. He returned to Osaka and established his workshop in 1880.

He created a new form of intricate art work characterized by detailed landscapes and decorative motifs. The early art works were so detailed that one would need the aide of a magnification glass to appreciate the fine miniature paint work. During 20th century he adapted his work to appeal to wider audience through simplification of motif of design in keeping with the fashion of the period, maintaining the attention to detail throughout.

Not only the decorative flowers but also the children enjoying the Japanese traditional games are hand-painted on the cup.
