Often found in twentieth century works, the interest in the surface of a ceramic and in defying the shape of a vessel can be traced to the stress on the handmade and the immediate that first appeared in the Arts and Crafts movement in the West and the folk art (mingei) tradition in Japan. The extraordinary sense of movement in this vessel, and the way in which the interior and exterior join seamlessly, are typical of Sakiyama’s work, which often alludes to the rugged seacoast near his home.
