Shunemon’s works are characterized by beautiful forms that only an artist who has kept pursuing wheel shaping is able to create. His finished works with decorative engraving are often so thin that when held to the light they are transparent, and clearly show his desire to waste no porcelain clay. His works are marked by a contradictory sharpness and softness; delicate engraving, and such sections as the rim and foot (bottom) demonstrate his painstaking handwork, with meticulous attention to each technique he spares no effort in finishing a work.
