Modern Japanese Pottery Tsubo by Kato Sho
Sold, Thank you!

A small Tsubo by Kato Sho (1927-2001) enclosed in the original signed wooden box. The dark earth is covered in a metallic blue glaze, running in rivulets over the scarred surface and washing onto the roughend clay of the base like the tide pulling back from the beach at night. The Tsubo is roughly 6 inches (15 cm) tall and in perfect condition. 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.
