For this large plate, the light-green celadon glaze serves a pictorial purpose, a representation of autumn mist moving among clumps of autumn plants, including pampas grasses, bellflowers, and chrysanthemums. The same type of lozenge-shaped mist can be seen in textile design and paintings in the so-called yamato-e style, or “Japanese-style painting.”
