Japanese Green Studio Pottery Vase from the Studio of Rokubei VI

About

Japanese Studio pottery vase which has been artfully embellished with a subtle glaze, a pale olive green ground beautifully broken by an intricate foliage-like pattern. A hand waiting to hold one perfect branch. From the studio of ROKUBEI VI. Dimensions: Diameter 20cm x height 33cm About the artist: Kiyomizu Rokubei VI Kiyomizu Rokubei(?????) is the name assigned to the head of the Kyoto-based Kiyomizu family of ceramists. With over 240 years of history, the studio is now into its eighth generation. It is currently headed by contemporary ceramist and sculptor Rokubei VIII. The family were influential in the development and survival of Kyo ware. Rokubei VI, the eldest son of Rokubei V, graduated from the Kyoto City School of Art and Craft (??????????) and Kyoto Municipal College of Painting (??????????) before apprenticing with his father from 1925. That same year, he entered his first competition. His career was to be marked by success in exhibitions including numerous awards at the Bunten (??), Teiten (??) and Nitten (??). He was later frequently selected as a judge and director of these national exhibitions. He enjoyed international acclaim, showing pieces at exhibitions, having his works join museum collections and winning awards in Belgium, the USSR, France and Italy. He was made a member of the Japan Art Academy (??????) in 1962 and awarded the Order of Cultural Merit (????) in 1976. Both before and after he became Rokubei VI in 1945, he participated in efforts to promote young artists by founding a variety of organizations. He was one of "the first wave of 'individualist' potters in contemporary Japanese history" known for his unique pieces and innovations. He created new glazes in 1953 and 1971 and invented a new firing technique in 1955. He was skilled at various Japanese and non-Japanese styles of pottery and praised for his versatility. In 1980, Rokubei VI collapsed while visiting an exhibition celebrating the Kiyomizu family's history. He died soon after.
