A giant of contemporary Japanese pottery whose wideranging repertoire includes revivals of Joseon-period Korean ceramics, Tsujimura Shirō has established himself as an artist whose deep command of buncheong-inspired whiteslip application produces works that are both reverent and original. The work here displays his particular fondness for a technique known in Japanese as kohiki whereby a vessel is dipped, either partially or in its entirety, in white slip. Tsujimura does so in ways that highlight the sensuous and artistic possibilities of that medium.
