This intriguing item is a kiseru (traditional Japanese pipe). It is part of a new series of works made by Suzuki Goro, exposed in Tokyo from April 6 to April 15, 2012.
Once again, the master craftsman has revisited a once familiar object and transformed it, with his ever playful spirit and his expertise of the craft. That blending of tradition and originality reinvents the pipe and the experience of using it altogether (the pipe may actually be smoked).
Kindly inquire if you have any question.
Suzuki Goro is a potter who goes beyond that usual appellation. He has developed a unique way of expressing himself through ceramics, basing his work on traditional styles from the Mino tradition: Shino, Oribe, Ki-Seto (yellow Seto), Setoguro (black Seto) and the Karatsu tradition. His works, which have a strong sense of individualism, include tea bowls with colorful painted cars and life size chairs, but he is also a master of more orthodox pieces. In 2002, Suzuki Goro received the very prestigious Japan Ceramic Society Prize.
The kiseru is signed and in perfect condition. It will be shipped in a signed box (please allow a few weeks for the box to be made and signed). Dimensions: 8.5 x 5.5 x 6 (height) cm (3.4 x 2.2 x 2.4 in)
The listed price includes EMS shipping.
