Nezumi Shino Mallet Vase by Suzuki Tomio
To further enhance shino's tactile appeal, Suzuki Tomio approaches every unglazed pot as a landscape architect would an undeveloped plot of earth. It first requires slow, thoughtful sculpting before anything is lain upon it. As a result, his clay creations are renowned for their terraced surfaces, ridges, and winding vistas.
Suzuki's unique approach to shino is proudly represented here in this captivating vase. It is formed to resemble the type of wooden mallets used in Japanese woodcraft and can accommodate small arrangements with long stemmed flowers. It commands equal attention, though, all on its own and makes the ideal accessory for any Japanese-influenced interior or modern décor.
Suzuki Tomio's shino pottery is held in private collections around the world and, in 2011, was acquired by the Philadelphia Museum of Art for display in their East Asian Art collection.
A wooden presentation box will be custom made to order and signed by the artist. Delivery time for this item is 2 weeks.
