Sold, Thank you!
Pale green ash glaze mottles the sandy Seto striated sides of this large vase by Kato Shunto enclosed in the original signed wooden box. The vase is 10 inches (25 cm) tall, roughly 7 inches (17.5 cm) diameter and in fine condition. Shunto is a very highly esteemed Seto artist, some of his handicrafts held by Aichi prefecture as important cultural properties. Works by him are often praised at the prestigious Nitten exhibition, as well as the Brussels Grand-Prix, and his dishes grace the table of the Japanese Emperor as a favorite of the Royal Prince and Princess.
