Sale - New Price
A magnificent aka-shino chawan (red shino tea bowl) made by one of the most acclaimed contemporary potters, Suzuki Goro (b. 1941).
This spectacular vessel is truly unique, the artist never could replicate the fiery red glaze and in a way, it is an ode to its energetic creative spirit.
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 bowl has been named “鬼あざみ” (devil’s azalea), and will be shipped in two boxes (nijubako), a treatment usually reserved for exceptional vessels.
The chawan is signed and in excellent condition.
Size: 12.5 x 9 cm (5 x 3.6 in)
