Sold, Thank you!
Pale lavender dapples the torn surface of this kurinuki vase by important artist Kaneta Masanao enclosed in the original signed wooden box. This style of digging the work out of the clay rather than forming the clay on a wheel has been a signature of this artists work for two decades. The vessel is roughly 5-1/2 x 8 inches (20 x 14 cm), 7 inches (18 cm) tall and in excellent condition.
Masano likely needs no introduction, certainly one of Hagis most well known names, he has been displayed both nationally and internationally innumerable times. His pieces are in the collection of the Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art, Yamaguchi Prefectural Museum and Museum of Modern Art Brooklyn. He has been displayed innumerable times both domestically and abroad.
