|This amazing piece, a marriage of stone and Haiyu ceramic, is part of a series of 26 listed in this catalog. The objets were exposed in October 2007 in Tokyo, as a first in Japan, and maybe in the world; Suzuki Goro has fused stone and clay in his feracious fire, to create remarkable works, which, once again, are evidences of his fertile and daring spirit and his unique connection to an endless source of inspiration. Like the 26 letters of the alphabet, each piece is unique and begins its own story. And each work offers a different insight into the prolific mind of the master potter who never ceases to surprise and amaze his audience, every member of which is invited to use his/her own creativity in the use and displaying of the wonderful compositions. These pieces of art are trophies to the history of pottery. 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 conventional pieces. In 2002, Suzuki Goro received the very prestigious Japan Ceramic Society Prize. Each piece will be shipped in a signed box. Price includes shipping charges. Dimensions: 18 cm x 16 cm (7.2 in x 6.4 in) Please inquire if you have any question.|
