Iro-sumi-nagashi vessel by Setsu Junji
Setsu Junji is a Kyoto born (’75) and raised ceramic artist we first noticed a few years ago. His works are *very* distinctive for his original technique of ‘drawing’ on clay slabs to create enigmatic designs than conjure up all sorts of images in the viewer’s mind. For these works he’s gaining national recognition including having a work that was shown at the Shigaraki Ceramic Park Museum as well as winning the Oribe Prize at the 9th Toki Modern Tea Wares Exhibition, where the celebrated chawan critic Hayashiya Seizo was very taken with Setsu’s chawan: http://www.toki-bunka.or.jp/?eventinfo=eventinfo-3554-2 Here is a Setsu vessel that has slightly pleated sides in distinctive tones of blacks, grays, whites and reds: in perfect condition with a signed box, 19.5cm.tallx37cm.longx10cm, signed on base.
