36 Views Of Mount Fuji


An homage to Hokusai's woodblock printed masterworks.  This series completed in early 2021 and was the subject of Kawada-san's 2020 theme.  All of these containers come with a signed & stamped kiribako by IKKAN that tells the story of each container and a signed & stamped gold cloth,  Three of the containers were displayed in the 2020 (15th) Annual Contemporary Kobachi Artist Exhibition (at Gafu-ten), though were ineligible for an award due to Kawada-san's Gold Award in 2019.

Michael Ryan Bell at Japanese Bonsai Pots Blog created an excellent 200th post celebrating traditional motifs like Hokusai's works in modern containers. A superb read!
