Héki Tenmoku Senbun Vase by Kamada Kōji
Through constant experimentation, Kamada Kōji has elevated tenmoku, a technique originating in China during the Song dynasty, to an even higher level of refinement with the introduction of several signature glazes, each one adding another facet to the incredible diversity of his art.
This elegantly shaped vase is done in a glaze the artist has named héki tenmoku. Cobalt in the glaze produces a deep, soothing blue which is sure to attract closer attention. Demarcated strips of lustrous black (senbun) are accented with hints of pure silver, giving this piece a distinctly contemporary feel.
The vase can handle arrangements with long-stemmed flowers, and yellow is highly recommended. It makes the ideal centerpiece for any Japanese-influenced interior or modern décor.
Kamada Kōji's tenmoku works are held in private collections around the world and, in 2005, were acquired by New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art for display in their 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.
