The Shang Dynasty in China saw the birth of many bronze vessels.
“鼎”, a ding, was used for cooking and rituals, and was a symbol of authority for the powerful ruling class. Later on, the shapes of bronze vessels were adapted to ceramic forms with admiration, and Mineo greatly developed the shapes of bronze vessels to create artworks like this one. The surface is vigorously struck with a stick, pressed and twisted, and the spirit is put into it. This technique is referred to as “late Jomon” by Mineo. Celadon glazes are especially affected by firing temperature, humidity and firing methods, which in turn affect the atmosphere in the kiln and the color of the glaze. In contrast to the transparent surface, the double penetration where the celadon glaze accumulates in the vessel is also a major highlight. The encounter between the stunning form and the attractive celadon glaze has become a noteworthy work on the history of Japanese ceramics.
