Description

Greatly esteemed by tea ceremony practitioners for centuries, shino-yaki was first fired during the Momoyama era (1568-1603) at kilns in Minō - central Japan.  Glazed with a simple mixture of mostly feldspar and water, shino is renowned for its textured, citrus skin-like surface.

This shino saké flask by Suzuki Tomio is accented with gentle cascades of white feldspar and bold, iron-rich brushwork.  While cooling in the kiln, the glaze shrinks disproportionately around the claybody, forming a textured terrain of pinholes and crackles that invites further exploration.

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.
