Here is a marvelous ki-seto chawan (yellow seto tea bowl); one of five selected ki-seto vessels made by Suzuki Goro, one of the most famous contemporary Japanese potters, presented in this catalog together. The Ki-seto style is certainly one of the most difficult Mino traditions to master; here, the variety of presented designs seems to show an evolution in the level of mastery of the artist and his ability to reinvent the style each time. Suzuki Goro is known for his originality, which shines even through his most orthodox works.
Kindly inquire if you have any question.
Suzuki Goro is a potter who goes beyond that usual appellation. He has developed a unique way of expressing himself through ceramics, basing his work on traditional styles from the Mino tradition: Shino, Oribe, Ki-Seto (yellow Seto), Setoguro (black Seto) and the Karatsu tradition. His works, which have a strong sense of individualism, include tea bowls with colorful painted cars and life size chairs, but he is also a master of more orthodox pieces. In 2002, Suzuki Goro received the very prestigious Japan Ceramic Society Prize.
