Celestial  Lineage

Lost in the dreams of the golden dawn, the end of summer prelude melancholy. Autumn will soon arrive from the sacred depths. The Celestial Lineage, the essence  reflection on the errant soul enclosed on a Chawan.

Sakakouraizaemon

A journey through oneself and sovereign nature, between ascents to falls, each one under the banner of the most ancestral spirituality.

Sakakouraizaemon XI 11th Tokuzaka Koryo Saka Koraizaemon Chawan   (11.8 x 8.4)

Following Toyotomi Hideyoshi's invasions of Korea, Mori Terumoto, who ruled the pottery area at the time, brought back with him the brothers Li Shakko and Li Kei, who were Korean Joseon dynasty potters, when returning to Japan from Korea they built an official kiln in the castle town HAGI: Li Kei was the first generation of a lineage that inherited mainstream Hagi ware from generation to generation and worked at the official kiln of the Hagi Domain, alongside Miwa Kyusetsu's Miwa kiln. After Mori moved his castle to Hagi, he opened a kiln in Matsumoto Village of the castle town of Hagi, and was bestowed the name, "Koraizaemon" by the second generation feudal lord, Mori Tsunahiro. From that point onward, the name Saka Koraizaemon has been used since the first generation. From Time to Time..Since Hagi were born following  the Oni-Hagi Roots by Generation to Generation with Korea Saemon here an Eleven Generation Chawan. The 13th generation passed away in 2014, now theres currently a vacant position in the lineage, but seems the family found the young boy now became man and his destiny maybe will be to go ahead with Saka KILN!

Shinto Shrine It is built over the grave of Sugawara no Michizane and is one of the main shrines dedicated to Tenjin, the deified form of Michizane.

According to legend, Michizane was a gifted student who composed many poems dedicated to his favorite plum trees. Said to be favored by the gods, Michizane raised the ire of the Fujiwara clan, who exiled him to Kyushu.  Michizane spent his exile studying, and died at the age of 57.

When Michizane died, his body was carried by an ox that stopped near a Buddhist monastery.Unable to move the body along, Michizane was buried there by his follower, Umasake no Yasuyuki, and the shrine was built there. Today, a statue of an ox stands nearby to commemorate the event. It's also said that the plum tree inside the shrine flew from Kyoto to be reunited with Michizane in his death, and that it is always the first plum tree to bloom in Japan.

Soon after Michizane died, five members of the Fujiwara clan, the royal family involved in Michizane's exile, died, one from a lightning strike that struck the clan's castle. Michizane, deified as Tenjin, was thus seen as a vengeful spirit. When disasters struck Kyoto, the same royal family aimed to appease Michizane's spirit and, as penance, reinstated his position and rank posthumously. Through this appeasement, Tenjin's reputation became associated with literature and education.
