Sudo Takeo was born in Mashiko in 1931 and worked at his family kiln, Tobo-Hinata, which was established in 1868 by the first potter of this lineage, Sudo Yujiro. Takeo had known Hamada Shoji from childhood and when Hamada settled in Mashiko he went to work with him for awhile and, as this vase shows, became influenced by his work. Sudo san continued to produce work from his family kiln until he died in 1998 and now the family tradition is continued by his son-in-law and grandson.

The vase comes with its own original wooden box, which has his seal and description of the vase on the inside of the lid and his seal is also impressed into the foot of the vase. It has no damage or restoration.
