Perhaps you have already tried to find one of the rare pieces of Ando Minoru. I guess you did not find it on the free market. Today you will find it here. A quite spectacular vase made in the form of a dark iron glazed Tokoname pot inside a shattered crucible by multi-talented Ando Minoru enclosed in the original signed wooden box.

Intentional or not Ando is not talking. The vase certainly exudes the Japanese aesthetic of lack of intention...
