I used the sekka sumihajiki method on the white base to express the leaves, stems and buds of Japanese anemones. Inside the circles, I drew flower petals and buds. I tried to blend in the impressive yellow color of the flower into the calm and peaceful world of Japanese anemones.

Sekka sumihajiki (decorating with white slip, glazing and firing, making the patterns remain white after firing), platinum glaze, sumihajiki (drawing patterns in ink before applying cobalt oxide, glazing and firing, making the drawn patterns remain white after firing)
