E-karatsu Guinomi by Suzuki Goro

A splendid guinomi (sake cup) made by one of Japanís best-known contemporary potters, Suzuki Goro. Karatsu pottery originated more than four hundred years ago in the small town of Karatsu, located in northern Kyushu. It has been a favorite of tea practitioners for centuries, for its simple design and natural feel. Decorated karatsu ware is called E-karatsu.

Kindly inquire if you have some questions.

Suzuki Goro is a potter who transcends that 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 traditions. 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 inspired by the grandeur of Momoyama period (1568-1615) ceramics. In 2002, Suzuki Goro received the very prestigious Japan Ceramic Society Prize.
