Lug handles hang gently from the side of this blue-glazed Hagi vase by Richard Milgrim enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is 9-1/2 inches (24.5 cm) tall, 4-1/2 inches (11 cm) diameter and in excellent condition.
Born in New York in 1955, Richard travelled to Japan in 1977 where he spent a year researching various ceramic traditions here. Returning to Japan in 79, he apprenticed under Iwabuchi Shigeya, and began studying the Way of Tea at Urasenke. His first private exhibition was held in 1981, and over the following years studied various traditions under Tahara Tobei (Hagi), Fujiwara Yu (Bizen) and Kato Koemon (Mino), establishing his own kiln in 1985. Since then his list of exhibitions is impressive, both domestic and abroad.
