The water container or Mizusashi, is used to hold the fresh water during the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
This segmented, pumpkin like form is typical of Ken Matsuzaki and can be seen throughout his range of work.
Having moved on from his Mingei roots, one of the traditions Matsuzaki looked to for inspiration was that of Oribe, from the Momoyama Period. Named after and inspired by the warrior, tea master and connoisseur of the arts, Furuta Oribe. Oribe wares are often identifiable by their vivid green, copper based glaze and may also have underglaze brushwork patterns painted in white.
