Sold, Thank you
Here is a stunning basin by Nishioka Midori (b. 1958) enclosed in the original signed wooden box. The bowl flares abruptly up from a wide flat base, geometric patterning in color, iron, resist and clouded-green. 2/3rds of the way down it transfers to a thin ashen glaze pronouncing the underlying clay. It is roughly 12 inches (30 cm) diameter, 4-1/4 (11 cm) tall and in perfect condition. Midori graduated from the Kyoto University of Fine Arts, and has been featured in the Asahi Craft Exhibition, as well as the All Japan Ceramic Exhibition (Nihon Togei Ten). One feels an understated influence by the works of Kamoda Shoji in her pieces. A rising star in the ceramics world, works by her are held in the Polk Museum among others.
