"Sazanami" (Ripples) Vase
Kimura Yoshiro, Japanese, born 1946
Kimura Yoshiro, whose kiln is in Hiroshima, Japan, was inspired by ancient Greek and Chinese forms when he created this vase. He developed his hallmark blue glaze-seen here ranging in hue from a kingfisher aqua to a deep cobalt blue-black-while studying with the renowned Kutani ceramist Izu Zojuro in the early 1970s.
