Elegant Hagi hanging vase with a variety of colors from grey-blue to creamy white and lavender by master potter; Ono Zuiho. This hanging vase is made of a rich iron clay from Kyushu with a creamy slip and ash glaze over the piece.
Ono Zuiho is considered to be one of the 20th centuries most important Hagi potters. His work was not only traditional and geared toward chadogu, tea ceremony implements, but much of his work has a modern flare to it. His works are held by a number of public and private institutions and museums as well as numerous collections in Japan and abroad. His pottery is also well documented in a large number of books and catalogues as well as several Kodansha book series on Modern Japanese Pottery.
