A large vase by Living National Treasure Shimizu Uichi enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Tenmoku-yu Kabin inside a black lacquered wooden niju-bako box. It is 14-1/2 inches (37 cm) tall, 8 inches (20 cm) diameter and in fine condition.
Shimizu Uichi (1926-2004) was born in Kyoto the son of a ceramic dealer. Discarding the family business he apprenticed in plastic arts under Ishiguro Munemaro. His work retains some principal elements of his teachers style while incorporating an understated elegance and avant-garde spirit of challenge uncommon for his time. He was first exhibited at the Nitten in 1951, receiving numerous awards there since. He also took the gold medal at the Prague International Exhibition, and was at the Brussels World Exposition. He is in the collection of the Tokyo National Museum, Kyoto Museum of Modern art, Clark Center and the Freer Gallery among others.
