Aka 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 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.
This vase serves as a wonderful example of Suzuki's sculptural approach to forming. It is done in a deep aka (red) shino with white feldspar drip detailing. Its cylindrical body is sturdy enough to accommodate ikébana compositions of branches and long stemmed flowers. As an interior piece, however, it commands equal attention all on its own.
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.
