The artist has confronted each character directly with the brush, clear and selfless, from a state of Mushin...

He has managed to capture both the solitary life o fthe mendicant priest, as well as an ephemeral sense of the fleeting world and our time in it. This is a most interesting commentary on Japanese life, proof that Buddhism and religious influence are not strictly things of the past...

Not to save the best for last, but this piece by Nagae Shigekazu is simply breathtaking. The pattern of light and dark squares which drives direct lines across the distended quadrilateral form hails images of the Ichimatsu-moyo pattern at the Katsura Rikyu imperial palace. The lyrical curves of the vessel itself are in sharp contrast to the extreme precision of the patterns, creating a unique dialog between viewer and viewed...

A striking work covered in granulated geometric patterns by Nagae Shigekazu enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shikakkei no Katachi (Quadrilateral Form).

As they say, there are no straight lines in nature...

There is something ancient about the trumpeting rim reminiscent of pre medieval or even continental forms on this voluminous bottle by Otani Shiro enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shigaraki Tsubo.

The vase is 37.5 cm (15 inches) tall, 24.5 cm (8 inches) diameter and in excellent condition.
