This is a set of museum quality blue and white porcelain vases crafted by the most respected Mino ware potter KATO Gosuke in Meiji period late 19. In late 19th century, he produced the highest quality of blue and white porcelain works and aggressively participated in World Expos to have repeatedly won honorable awards, e.

At 1878 Paris Expo (Expositions Universelles de Paris), 1893 Chicago Expo (the World's Columbian Exposition), as well as 1900 Paris Expo again. He signed at the base of the vases as. Made by KATO Gosuke at Mino of Great Japan.

Note: There was another KATO Gosuke ("from Seto" as opposed to "from Mino"), whose name in Japanese had a different character . The white glassy glaze and the vibrant hue of the blue color seen on the vases was developed by Gosuke. His drawing is incredibly fine (thinner than hair), precise and mesmerizing (photo 6 8). To make these happen, he made painting brushes and blue glaze by himself.

After he passed away, none could follow his heritage because it was too difficult to do and extremely costly. The scene (or theme) of this work is the flowers and birds in fall (photo #1 5).

They are also decorated with unique patters including abstracted chrysanthemum (photo #5). You will be amazed with Gosuke.

The photo #11 is the exhibition catalog published in 1991, when Gosuke. S works were exhibited at Museum of Modern Ceramic Art situated in Gifu prefecture. The very similar vase was exhibited at the exhibition. There is one tiny mark at the bottom (photo # 9).

It seems a tiny piece of cray attached there during baking process in the kiln. It could often happen during Meiji period while everything was done manually.
