Sold, Thank you!
A scalloped blue vessel by important Kyoto artist Miyashita Zenji enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It stands 10 inches (25.5 cm) tall and is in fine condition. Here I believe his father’s emphasis on form is evident, yet we see him experimenting with that blue glaze which would make him so famous.
Zenji (1939-2012) was born into the family of potter Miyashita Zenju, and graduated the Kyoto Municipal University of Art. Starting with the most difficult, he worked from Celadon, which relies on shape and extreme control of firing. He is held in the British Museum, Metropolitan New York, Brooklyn Museum among a host of others.
