Description

Hailing from Kyoto's Yawata District, Suzuki Tomio has reinvigorated the world of shino with his provocative clay creations of incredible tactile richness and creative energy.  Lavish applications of feldspar, deep crackles and bold brushwork are the trademarks of his craft.

This saké cup is a proud display of Suzuki's unique approach to shino.  It is done in nezumi (lit. "mouse") shino, as denoted by its soft grey colors.  While cooling in the kiln, the glaze shrinks disproportionately faster around the claybody, forming a exquisitely crackled landscape that invites closer exploration.

A gem for any saké connoisseur's collection.

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.
