Color flares from black to green to lavender on this vase from the kiln of Living National Treasure Tokuda Yasokichi III enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is 6 inches (15 cm) tall and in fine condition. Designated Living National Treasure in 1997 for his supremacy in the use of Kutani glazes, Yasokichi, born Masahiko, has gone a step further than many National Treasures by broadening his spectrum with a new style of Kutani ware. Masahiko graduated from the Kanazawa school of arts, and took up apprenticeship under his father Yasokichi II. His works are held by many private collections, as well as the Polk museum and Kanazawa Contemporary Museum of Art.
