  • About

    Yagi Issô (1894-1973) is the father of Yagi Kazuo, one of the founders of the Sôdeisha, an avant-garde group of ceramicists and sculptors, and grand father of Yagi Akira (b.1955), whose work is also in the collection (Acc.no. 378.1997).

    In its simple, unpretentious form, this long, slender vase with two ear-shaped lugs is extremely elegant. It is suitable for the display of one single flower in the tea-ceremony.
