A spectacular chawan (tea bowl) by Suzuki Tomio (b. 1948).
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. He 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.
This remarkable chawan is a fine example of the genre and certainly one of his best. It is in perfect condition, signed by the potter and will be shipped in a signed wooden box.
