Sakaida Kakiemon XV
Imari/Arita ware 1968-
Kakiemon is said to have been the first to develop the Akae technique in Japan.
One of the main characteristics of Kakiemon's works is the soft, warm, milky white fabric called "Nigoshide".
Kakiemon XV has inherited this technique. His predecessor, Kakiemon XIV, is a Living National Treasure, and Kakiemon (Nigoshide) is designated as a national intangible cultural asset.
The porcelain porcelain of the Kakiemon style, in which the colors of the Nigoshide are displayed in an asymmetrical composition utilizing the margins, and in which flowers and birds blooming in the fields and mountains are delicately painted, is very popular.
