Shigaraki Ripped/Gold Kintsugi Vase by Sawa Kiyotsugu
Positioned in a strategic spot while loading the kiln, this vase was then plucked from the height of firing and allowed to cool rapidly and thus gray and green natural ash-glaze on this Sawa Kiyotsugu vase. Sawa (b.1948) is known for his attacking approach to the rough clay, ripping and tearing it, deconstructing his own creation. And the wonderful Japanese aesthetic of kintsugi is like a bolt of lightning across the front. Water is fine. 25cm.tallx14.5cm.x12.6cm., signed on base, signed box.
