A bold work by 20th century potter Shimizu Jun enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Red Rocet. The platter is 16 inches (40.5 cm) diameter, 2-1/2 inches (6 cm) tall and in perfect condition. Jun was born in Osaka in 1951, graduating the Osaka City Industrial Institute (Metalworking) in 1969, upon which time he moved to the Kyoto Ceramics Research Facility. Avoiding the political world of National competition, Jun concentrated on Local events as a forum for exposure, beginning with the Kyo-Ten (Kyoto Prefectural Art Exhibition) in 1971. Since 1979 works have been displayed at the Nihon Shin Kogei Ten (Japan New Crafts Exhibition). This piece dates circa that era.
