A sophisticated yet subdued flower vessel in hard-baked clay covered in gray, brown glaze with iron and incrusted cinders to emulate an ancient building fragment.

The vessel can be placed in different positions. Signed box. Executed around 2011. H. 29cm, W. 22.5 cm, Deep 13 cm. Condition: Excellent.
Takeuchi Kouzo, a graduate of Osaka University of Arts in 2001 Takeuchi has quickly become one of the leading exponents of contemporary ceramic art in Japan with several international exhibitions and commissions to his name. Although he also makes utilitarian pieces, especially cups in delicate, unglazed porcelain, he is essentially an innovator and experimenting artist with a unique and characteristic style.
