Ki-Seto (Yellow Seto) Incised Disc-Sculpture Vase by Kato Shigetaka
Kato Shigetaka (1927-2013) was the third son of the late great Kato Tokuro (1897-1985), younger brother of Okabe Mineo (1919-1990), and father of Takahiro. Shigetaka had his own very successful career winning the Japan Ceramic Society Prize and having a Shino work featured on the cover of the ‘Modern Japanese Ceramics in American Collections’ exhibition catalog published by the Japan Society, NY in 1993. Kato, believe it or not, had his first exhibition in Tokyo in 1988—he started in clay with his father in 1945 and assisted Tokuro as well as making his own works, including dozens of ceramic walls in buildings throughout Japan. This is a rare museum quality Ki-Seto work that dates to 1970s. It has all the rugged qualities and refinement that epitomizes the finest of Kato’s work. In perfect condition with a signed box, 33.5cm.tallx37.2×15, signed on base.
