Ceramist

MIKAWACHI - porselein, ook bekend als Hirado-keramiek 


Een verfijnde vorm van Japans porselein dat zijn oorsprong vindt in de Tokugawa-periode (1603-1867). Het wordt vervaardigd in de ovens van Mikawachi, gelegen op het betoverende eiland Hirado in de provincie Hizen, nu onderdeel van de prefectuur Nagasaki. Hoewel de ovens in de 17e eeuw werden opgericht door Koreaanse pottenbakkers, begon de ware glorie pas in 1751, toen ze onder de bescherming van de prins van Hirado kwamen. Het was op dat moment dat ze begonnen met het creëren van het kenmerkende volledig witte en blauw-witte porselein waar ze wereldberoemd om werden.

Het porselein van Mikawachi wordt gekenmerkt door zijn fijne, witte textuur en wordt vaak versierd met minutieus geschilderde landschappen, bomen, bloemen of sierlijke figuren in een subtiel onderglazuur blauw. De figuren van spelende Chinese jongens (karako) zijn bijzonder opvallend. Naast schilderingen werden ook reliëfdecoraties en kleurglazuren, vooral in donkerbruin, toegepast. De ambachtslieden produceerden een breed scala aan objecten, variërend van waterdruppelaars, kleine wierookbranders en penseelsets tot inkt paletten en gebeeldhouwde dierenfiguren.
De periode van vorstelijke bescherming duurde voort tot 1843, waarna de kwaliteit van Mikawachi-porselein geleidelijk afnam.
