Sold, Thank you!
Tall, bold vase by Shino and oribe specialist; Higashida Shigemasa (b. 1955). Glazed in his signature HakuSetsu Shino and haiyu glazes, this vase shows his strong deconstructivist styling married with contemporary Japanese aesthetics to create a unique and idiosyncratic work for which he is known for around the world. Measuring 12.25" x 6.25" and in perfect condition this pot is accompanied by his original signed box.
There is a lot written about Higashida and a quick search around the web will fill in his bio but let it suffice to say that he has had numerous exhibitions in Japan and abroad and is illustrated in numerous publications. His pottery is held in a number of private and public collections and his work is not easily available even in Japan as his shows sell out quickly despite his quickly rising prices. This vase is a classic example of Higashida's work and shows his unique style which has added yet another facet to the Mino traditions of both Shino and Oribe pottery.
