An interesting attribute of these pottery points is that when suspended from a string they make a very melodic tone when st...

An iconic work by Suzuki Goro, one of the famed chairs made in the Oribe style of pottery. Suzuki Goro has always let his playful mind inspire him to create objets, based on techniques developed during the Japanese Momoyama period (1583-1600). The Mino pottery tradition with its wide spectrum of styles (Shino, Oribe, Seto,...) has been an ideal play field for the artist.

Suzuki Goro is a potter who goes beyond that usual appellation. His works, which have a strong sense of individualism...

Large Chinese Western Han Dynasty Stoneware Jar

This large and impressive pottery jar, the shape known as a "pou", was made during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8). This type of stoneware is often referred to as "proto-porcelain" although the body of this particular example is porous so it is a little under-fired. The surface colour varies from grey to a pinky-brown due to uneven conditions in the kiln during firing. The round body is surrounded by impressed bands and on opposing sides ...
