A monolithic work by Suzuku Soji exhibited 1977 Nihon Gendai Kogei Ten and featured in the catalog for that year in addition to being published in the retrospective book Suzuki Soji Sakuhin-shu, p. 96. The vase measures 56 x 40 x 36 cm (22 x 16 x 14 inches). There are two points on the piece which may have been repaired or where it was supported in the kiln, however these are visible as is in the published material. The original exhibition label, 1977 Gendai Kogeiten catalog and retrospective book mentioned above are included. There is no box. Due to size the cost of shipping will be accrued separately.
Suzukuk Soji (b. 1939) graduated from the Kyoto Municipal University of Art where he studied ceramics under Living National Treasure Tomimoto Kenkichi. Much lauded, he was repeatedly awarded at the Nitten National Exhibition from the late 60s through the 80s, and was exhibited at many other exhibitions both national and regional, including here the National Crafts Exhibition (Nihon Gendai Kogeiten). A simple tea bowl by this artist sold at Christies New York in 2002, exceeding the estimate at 1,912 dollars long before even the contemporary interest in modern Japanese Ceramics blossomed.
