The source of the name “SHUNKO” refers to the phase from a classical Chinese poem. The piece strongly sticks with the traditional Raku style, taking a hand-forming technique. The body is coated with a thickly black glaze, partially being scraped off it and being painted with a vivid yellowish green, called a 'moegi' glaze. It looks as if the glaze scenery is the Chang Jiang in Spring. Inside the large, trimmed foot of the piece, the ‘RAKU’ mark of Kichizaemon XV is impressed. The work is one of the “Ha no SHU” series.
