Sold, Thank you
A stunning silver glazed Tokkuri by artist Kozuru Gen (b. 1938) in the original signed kiri wood box. The vase is completely covered in silver or platinum glaze with sansai like yellow and green in spontaneous crystalline dabs set in extra drippings of thick silver about the circumference. Countering this strength of character is faded orange, adding a subtle suggestion inside the mouth of the bulbous Tokkuri form. The vase, which dates circa 1980, is 7 inches (18 cm) tall. Gen has operated a kiln in both Fukuoka Japan as well as in Topsfield Massachusetts, and has participated in too many national and international exhibitions to mention. His work is held in the permanent collection of the Kyoto Museum of Modern Art among others.
