Matcha bowl with tree peony flower pattern made by Kayama Tetsuya (1954-), potter in Ôiso in Kanagawa prefecture.

Tetsuya Kayama, whose father was Matazo Kayama (a Japanese painter who led the postwar Japanese painting world) studied Japanese painting seriously, but a meeting with ceramic artist Shiro Banura led Tetsuya to pursue a career not as a Japanese painter but as a ceramic artist. Many of his works are designed as if they were paintings, and he produced many works that can be appreciated simply by looking at them.
Since ancient times, the peony has been known as the "king of a hundred flowers", that is, the king of flowers, and is considered a very noble flower.
