Description A piece of studio ceramic art made by Makoto Yabe (1947-2005), Massachusetts, circa late 20th century. The lidded pot is known as Mizusashi in Japanese tea ceremony and is used to hold cold water for tea brewing. This piece features a faceted columnar form with irregular cut out on the base. The turquoise glaze was partially applied to the top part of the exterior in a free dripping style. The entire interior was fully glazed. A piece that perfectly reflects the Japanese wabi-sabi aesthetic. Artist's mark is on the base.
"Makoto Yabe's work beautifully exemplifies the transmission of Japanese ceramics to the West. Born in Fukushima, Japan, Yabe began studying ceramics in Kyoto at the age of nine. He completed his training at the age of 24, with a four-year apprenticeship under Jinmatsu Uno and Sango Uno. Yabe then came to Boston, where he was an integral member of the local ceramic community, yet he maintained his Japanese roots. As an instructor of ceramics, Yabe worked in the Boston area at numerous schools and universities, touching the lives of all his students and expanding their knowledge and appreciation of studio ceramics."
