Jusouken Kikkou, Born Kyoto and working Osaka. A well known maker of tea ware with a long history creating tea bowls for the Urasenke tea school. HIs works are celebrated for their simplicity and rich, bright white glazes. Kikkou often hand paints relief motifs on his chawan and in the case of this piece, he utilizes the Genji Ko pattern. This pattern from The Tale of Genji is most often associated with the incense guessing game Genji Ko. Truly a modern masterpiece.
