Young pines burst with energy up the sides of this quintessential Kyo-yaki bowl by Ito Tozan I enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Wakamatsu-e Kashiki (Sweets Dish decorated with Young Pine). It is 7 inches (17.5 cm) diameter3-1/2 inches (9 cm) to the rim and in excellent condition.
Ito Tozan I (1846-1920) began his artistic career studying painting in the Shijo manner under Koizumi Togaku before moving to the plastic arts under a number of teachers, including Takahashi Dohachi. He began using the name Tozan in 1895, and later received a number of prizes from the Imperial family, as well as being internationally acclaimed in the Paris, Chicago and Amsterdam Exhibitions. It is no surprise he would be chosen to create the dishes from which the Emperor would drink. He was named a member of the prestigious Imperial Art Academy in 1917, three years before his death. He worked very closely with his adopted son Ito Tozan II (1871-1937).
