This fantastic piece is part of a series of coffee wan (vessels) made by Suzuki Goro. Each is a real cup that can actually be used to drink coffee, tea or anything else for that matter. The potter has, as always, let his imagination run freely and playfully, and the results are as wonderful as amusing.
Each piece also validates Suzuki Goro as one of the great contemporary ceramists. Suzuki Goro, born in 1941, is a potter who goes beyond 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 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.
