Tsubaki for celebration

祝いの椿

“Tamatsubaki” is a complimentary name of tsubaki which is Japanese traditional flower. The beautiful red color of the tsubaki flower has been loved by the Japanese for a long time. In pottery making, a red glaze is difficult to achieve. Miyama is particular about the color, so they developed new original red glaze by using a deformation technique during firing. As a result, they succeeded in expressing the beautiful red of the tsubaki flower. Traditionally in Japan, red and white colors are often used in auspicious occasions such as festivals and weddings. Miyama’s tamatsubaki beautifully adorned on a table brightens up the celebration.

「玉椿」とは、日本の伝統花「椿」の美称であり、椿の持つ美しい紅色は古来より日本人に愛されてきた。陶磁器において、赤釉は色の表現が難しいとされる。深山は色へのこだわりから、窯変釉を取り入れた新たな赤釉を独自に開発。これにより、深みのある情緒的な色を実現し、白磁とあわせて、椿の持つ紅と白を美しく表現することに成功した。日本の紅白は、伝統的にハレの場(祭りや結婚式などの祝い事)に用いられる。深山の玉椿は、様々な祝い事において、祝いの席を色鮮やかに飾ることだろう。
