Hello forum... :)

 

I am trying to learn about Jizai Onimono and their makers.

This is the Breast Plate of the "Crayfish" art piece I bought.

 

May I please ask, can you help me with the name translation and who he was or family history?

 

I have been searching the internet, but, there is only a few sites, and, most are about Onimono Auctions/for sale sites.

 Is there any sites that are dedicated to Jizai Onimono art work and enthusiast?

 

I did not know where else to ask.

 

Thanks for viewing..

Hi,
Right pronunciation is jizai-okimono, not jizai-onimono.
It's a shrimp, not a crayfish.

The mei says Hiroyoshi.

Thank you Morita-san. :)

My ignorance..

I don't know how I miss named it.. :(

You're right..

I did see another one, and it was called "Ebi"..

 

I'd hope to learn and use the proper terms and names.

Thanks for the correction on both errors..

 

 

Alton :)

Hi Alton,

 

There are two nice books on Jizai Okimono, see links and video (Click on the picture).

(first one is in English and Japanese, second one only in Japanese)

Hello Jo,

Amazing.. I was researching Muniyuki Myochin the other week, and, it lead me to your website.

There, I saw the photo of you, Mr. Myochin and Mr. Fujimoto.

And now, here I am conversing with you. How amazing is that..

 

There, I also sadly learned, about Mr. Myochin's passing.. :(

 

 

I just bought another "ebi". This one is made by Mr. Myochin..

And, I am very proud to have one of his works..

 

Thanks for posting, and, congrats on your exciting work and dedication to Japanese Armor.

Brian, Alton,

 

Thank you for your kind words.

 

Concerning Myochin Muneyuki. Ishida Kenji made a book 'in dialog' with him. Ishida san also wrote a book on Myochin. See both below.

(if you click on a picture a movie should appear if all goes well ...)

There were also some nice pieces in the Lundgren collection. See below

I know that some of the people in the katchu section here or at Dave's place also are into jizai okimono... so maybe they will add to the discussion...

 

Jo
