Potters have dreamed of recreating the mysterious colors of fruit and flowers on porcelain for hundreds of years. Chinese potters of the Qing Dynasty achieved this by using powdered pigments, similar to the powdered glass used in Western cloisonné. To achieve this effect using traditional Japanese pigments remains extremely difficult and relies on a combination of intuition and luck.
This work is based on sketches produced by Hayama over a period of many years and employs traditional Japanese pigments to express the beauty of nature.
