Title

'Mizusashi' (water jar for the tea ceremony)


Artists

FUJIWARA Kazu

Japan

1958 -

Bizen ware

Japan


About

Fujiwara Kazu (b. 1958) was born into a celebrated Bizen potting family - both his grandfather Kei and his father Yu were named Living National Treasures. He has exhibited widely within Japan, including at the prestigious Exhibition of Japanese Traditional Arts and Crafts (Nihon Dento Kogeiten), and also internationally.

This water jar is typical of traditional Bizen ware, with its natural ash glaze effects and organic feel. However, the regular form and in particular the lid handle show a modern Western influence.
