Artistic Production:

  • Iroe-Takemon Dinner set (Facsimile edition)
    This series is based on one of Japan’s first French-style dinner tablewares produced under the guidance of the Arthur French Company of Boston. These tablewares were used in the Rokumei-kan, a guest house and reception hall built by the Meiji government to promote westernization, and also exported to western countries. These exports served to increase foreign currency reserves during the period.

  • Iroe Koyo (Autumn color of leaves) Seigai (Blue ocean) Ha (wave) mon dinner set
    This dinner set is the piece that the Seiji Company produced at its late period, when they introduced French ceramic producing machine in order for mass production and quality improvement. The son of the president, Tezuka Kamenosuke, Kuniichi might have flown to the United States due to the sluggish sales, did some market research, and worked on product development. The design was based on the traditional beauty with modern taste. It may be no exaggeration to say that this design was a pioneer of modern porcelain during this period. Depicting autumn color of leaves and coloring in a modern sense was quite realistic. For the exquisite design of Seigai Ha mon, they employed traditional outline technique. Dying of Hyoretsu (Broken ice) Baika (Plum flower) pattern symbolizes the Seiji Company’s enthusiasm.
