Sale - New Price
A very fine ki-seto chawan (yellow seto tea bowl) made by Suzuki Goro (b. 1941), one of the most famous contemporary Japanese potters.
The Ki-seto style of pottery is certainly one of the most difficult Mino traditions to master. Yet, here again the artist shows prowess and succeeds in reinventing the genre.
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.
The chawan is signed. It presents a small crack on the mouth rim, and traces of repair with lacquer and gold (kintsugi); kindly refer to pictures for details. The bowl will be shipped in a signed box.
