Ceramics, Japan

1 March 2017

1. Hosomi Museum

A porcelain bowl on purple cloth. A milky blue eye at its
base. A box to carry it in.

2. Museum of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka

The meiping vase shaped like a lover’s hip (celadon in pale
blue, inlaid with crane and cloud) draws the eye but forbids
the hand.


Notes:
In response to an antique ceramic bowl held in the Hosomi Museum, Kyoto, and a ceramic vase
held in the Museum of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka.
