This wonderful yunomi (tea cup) was made by Suzuki Tomio, a well known contemporary Shino potter. The richness of colors and the dynamism of his potteries make them sensuous, very attractive drinking companions.
Kindly inquire if you have any question.
Suzuki Tomio is one of the best Shino potters in Japan. In spite of the difficulty of making Shino ware, which has a very high loss rate, he has proven to be one of its masters. Born in Kyoto in 1948, Suzuki Tomio established his first kiln in the southern suburbs of Kyoto, in the Yawata district, in 1988 and since 1989 specializes only in Shino-yaki. Suzuki Tomio is famous for his Yohenkin-shino vessels, which have a spectacular soft golden caramel glaze and rich nacreous effects. He has held expositions at major venues in Japan and has been the recipient of several awards. He is also featured in books which recognize contemporary Japanese ceramists.
