Ceramic Closed Form Vessel with Rattle by Toshiko Takaezu

$ 6,500
  • Description
    A ceramic closed-form pot by Japanese American artist Toshiko Takaezu (American, 1922 - 2011). This iconic form by the artist takes the simplest organic form but is instilled with a deeper philosophy. The void space and the air trapped inside of the pot was considered by the artist as important as the physical material that defines the space. The pot showcases a white body with a dipped glaze on the lower half body. It was created with the artist's signature abstract and poetic approach: free hand and wabi-sabi. The earthy glaze colors are sober with subtle shades intermixed. There is a rattle placed in the pot making a lovely sound when the pot is shaken. Signed with incised TT on the base.
    The artist's work, heavily influenced by the Japanese ceramic tradition and aesthetics, elevated pottery into the status of fine art.
