Suzuki Goro was born in Mino
during 1941 and began making pottery in his teens when it is said that he
usually only got around 3 hours sleep a night as he wished to practise
throwing on the wheel. He has focused his ceramic vision on Momoyama inspired
wares that as well as Oribe, include Shino, Ki-Seto and Setoguro.
Having said that his work is not just copying the pots of yesteryear and it
has in fact got rather playful in recent years. However, this vessel is in
comparison retrained although it has a quite beauty and a significant
presence. It hasnít been used and Suzukiís incised mark is to be found at the
centre of the base.
exhibited extensively in Japan and the USA and in 2001 was awarded the Japan Ceramic Society
