Shino 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 requires slow, thoughtful sculpting before anything is planted - or glazed - upon it. As a result, his clay creations are renowned for their terraced surfaces, ridges, and winding vistas.
This attractive shino vase is one example of Suzuki's masterful forming. Deeply cut furrows create a rippled terrain that twists upward and around at the waist. Iron underglaze brushwork peers from beneath, guiding the eyes over rugged terrain in thoughtful exploration.
The vase is tall enough to accommodate arrangements with long stemmed flowers (yellow is highly recommended) and small branches. It makes an ideal centerpiece for any large table.
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.
