Sold, Thank you!
A large Kohiki Tokuri sake flask and two guinomi sake cups by Kondo Seiko enclosed in the original signed wooden boxes. So much play in the color, the Tokuri is 6-1/2 inches (16.5 cm) tall, the cups roughly 3 inches (8 cm) diameter. One of my personal favorites in our collection, and a wonderful cold summer sake set for two!
Born in 1945 in Nigata prefecture, a cold industrial city on the West coast of Northern Japan, Seiko would have been surrounded with utilitarian pottery as a child. The artist studied under Koyama Fujiyo before settling in central Gifu prefecture, on the fringes of Mino and Echizen territory.
