Metallic stream-lets meander pell-mell across the caramel surface of this large open bronze vessel by Takaoka Master Naimen Shiho following the style of the post-war era. It is lined with tar to protect from water and signed on the base. The vase is an exceptional 34 cm (14 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
Naimen Shiho I was one of the important bronze workers in the immediate pre and Post-war era and had a strong influence on bronze artisan-ship at the time. Naimen Shiho II apprenticed under his father from 1957. He received top prize at the first Takaoka Traditional Craft Exhibition in 1974, and was Designated a Traditional Artist (Kuni Shitei Dento Kogeishi) by the National Government in 1981.
