Iro-Sumi-Nagashi Ceramic Sculpture by Setsu Junji
Setsu Junji is a Kyoto born (’75) and raised ceramic artist, 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 During these odd times he’s been steadily working on new forms and he visited the gallery the other day with this stunning example. A diamond form that positively highlights his unique slip sheme, one can stare at this work for hours and get lost. In perfect condition with a signed box, 29.5cm.tallx42cm.x25.3.
