Enhanced by the overall simplicity of form, soft Hagi earth-tones over rough sandy clay make for a compelling work of art by modern Hagi artist Shinjo Sadatsugu (Sukeuemon XIV) enclosed in the original signed and stamped wooden box. The piece underscores the artists roots in traditional ceramic-ware, and speaks of an elegance sometimes lost in todays rush to be different. It is 15 inches (38 cm) diameter and in perfect condition. Sadatsugu was born into the Hagi Kamamoto in 1950. He graduated the countries top art university, the Tokyo University of Arts sculpture division, then moved on for a stint of research at the Kyoto Industrial Ceramics Laboratory (as had Hamada Shoji and Kawai Kanjiro years before) prior to his return home. He has been exhibited at the National Japanese Crafts Exhibition (Nihon Dento Kogei Ten), and prized at the Cha-No-Yu Zo-Kei Ten (Tea Ceramics Sculptural Exhibition), West Japan Ceramics Exhibition (Nishi Nihon Togei Ten), as well as the Yamaguchi Prefectural Ceramics Exhibition (Governors prize) among others.
