Description

Yabu Meizan was considered to be 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, returning to Osaka, where he established his workshop, in 1880.

Characterised by detailed landscapes and decorative motifs, Yabu Meizan created a new form of intricate artwork. The early artworks were so detailed that one would need the aid of a magnification glass to appreciate the Fine miniature paint-work. During the 20th century he simplified the motif of his designs to appeal to a wider audience and correspond to the fashion of the period, while maintaining his attention to detail throughout.

You can see a hundred hand-painted butterflies in the cup and various decorative flowers on the saucer.
