Nitten Exhibited Yashuhara Kimei Ikebana Vase w/box
Yasuhara Kimei (Yoshiaki-1906-1980) was one of most avant-garde Japanese ceramic artists of the 20th century. Since being noticed in 1930s by Teshigahara Sofu (1900-1979), founder of Sogetsu School of Ikebana, majority of his production were Ikebana vessels. This piece was made for 5th Nitten (held in 1949), and is published in 16th Volume of History of Nitten (Nittenshi), p. 390, piece number 284 (book is not included- but photocopies or relevant pages are included). This piece is one of few ceramic pieces illustrated (out of few hundred exhibited)! Box is inscribed by Kimei that it was made for and exhibited at 1949 Nitten. Yasuhara Kimei work is in the Tokyo National Museum of Art, Tokyo Art Museum, Tokyo National Museum of Contemporary art and many works in the Sogetsu Museum of Art, Art Gallery of NSW, Australia and Auckland Art Gallery among others. Yasuhara was based in Tokyo and he was a major contributor to Nitten. This piece is made for use in Ikebana. Piece is in perfect condition, one tiny kiln flaw on the design; piece is 8 3/8 (21.2 cm) tall and 10 7/8 (27 cm) in diameter, stamped on base, original signed box (aging to the box).
