Red highlights the orange and white on this playful form vase by Kato Yasukage enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shino Hanaire and signed by the 14th Generation Yasukage followed by his seal. The pin-holed glaze burnt and licked crimson by the flames. The way the color fades into the white feldspar one can almost imagine the smoke rising off of the molten form as it cooled in the kiln.
Size, D 14.2 cm H 30.8 cm
Condition, Excellent
Kato Yasukage XIV (Shoji) was born into the Yasukage family, one of the original unbroken lines of Oribe potters, in 1964. His father died while he was still young, and the boy was sent Bizen to study with Living National Treasure Yamamoto Toshu from the age of 18. And graduated the sculpture department of Nagoya University of Arts in 1987. He had an unprecedented solo exhibition just one year later at Kuroda Toen in Ginza and was awarded in 1989 at the Gifu Prefectural Art Exhibition. This was an auspicious start to an illustrious career which has spanned the Heisei era. Work by him is held in the Gifu Prefectural Ceramics Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Museum of Fine Art, Boston and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
