David Kuraoka Large Ceramic/ Pottery Vessel

About

This is truly a stunning piece. Impossible not to gravitate right to it. It is both remarkable in design and sheer magnitude. Would clearly be the centerpiece to any collection or in any setting. The vessel is signed and dated (1983) by the artist on the base. Kuraoka, who is known for his large hand shaped ceramic pieces in the Raku style (which are fired in an open pit), served as head of the ceramics department at San Francisco State University from 1982-2008. He maintains working studios in both San Francisco and Hawaii. In, 1987, at the age of 35, David Kuraoka was named a Living Treasure of Hawaii. Kuraoka's works can be found in many permanent museum and university collections including: Hawaii State Art Museum The College of San Mateo (San Mateo County, California) Honolulu Museum of Art The Hawaii State Art Museum The Kauai Museum (Lihue, Hawaii) The Rotterdam Modern Museum of Art The Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum Utah State University The White House Art Collection (Washington, D. C.) Dimensions: 10" high, 20.5" roughly in diameter.
