Green streaks the yellow glazed sides of this guinomi by Kato Sho enclosed in the original signed wooden box. Pinched and carved from a block of clay, this piece is a pleasure to hold. It is roughly 2 inches (5 cm) tall and in perfect condition.
Kato Sho (1927-2001) was born into the house of a potter, and graduated the Tokyo University of Art before branching out on his own. He made his National Debut at the Nitten in 1961. He has been since displayed nationally and internationally in the United States, Mexico and New Zealand among others. He received the Nitten Hokuto Prize, and was honored as judge at that most prestigious event, the same at the Asahi Togei Ten (Awarded), Kofukai, and Nihon Shin Kogei Ten (National Japanese New Craft Exhibition). He was named an Intangible Cultural Property for Aichi prefecture (the state level version of Living National Treasure) in 2000, one year before his death.
