Fujiwara Kyosuke is from Okayama and was born in 1939, the second son of Living National Treasure, Kei Fujiwara. His elder brother, Yu Fujiwara, was also a Bizen Living National Treasure and maybe because of this Kyosuke has devoted his time making work other than in the family tradition. The Kanji decoration on this chawan (meaning “the way”) was written by Kurozumi Muneharu, head of a religious sect of Kurozumi-Kyo, and his sign is also to be found on the wooden box under the central calligraphy. The summer chawan has Kyosuke’s inscribed mark on the base.
