A very attractive tokkuri (sake pouring vessel) made by Suzuki Goro, in the Narumi-oribe style of Seto pottery.
Narumi is a small town in Aichi prefecture (part of ancient Mino province, cradle of Mino ceramics). Narumi potteries are a mix of red and white clay and usually don the famed oribe green; this mixture of textures and colors is an ideal playfield for the artist.

Suzuki Goro is a potter who goes beyond that usual appellation. His works, which have a strong sense of individualism, include tea bowls with colorful painted cars, large mugs with stone bases and spectacular jubako (stacked boxes). He is also a master of more orthodox pieces. In 2002, Suzuki Goro received the very prestigious Japan Ceramic Society Prize.
The tokkuri is in good condition; it presents some repairs made with lacquer and gold (kintsugi) at the mouth; kindly refer to pictures for condition and details.
The vessel is signed and will be shipped in a signed wooden box.
