Together with masters such as Soetsu Yanagi and Shoji Hamada, who represent the Japanese folk crafts, and Kenkichi Tomimoto and Tatsuaki Kuroda, who represent modern Japanese crafts, they have laid the foundations of the Japanese folk crafts and played an active role as the central figure.
.. Kanjiro Kawai, a master of the Japanese folk art world who has been highly acclaimed worldwide, has pioneered a new frontier in modern ceramics with a profound and simple style pursuing "beauty of use" and won the Grand Prize at the Milan International Exhibition.
This work is a work in which three colors of red, black, and green with well-proportioned modeling and outstanding coloring are applied.
Kanjiro's glaze has a unique momentum and strength that its predecessors do not have.
Why don't you feel the overwhelming view of the world of Kanjiro Kawai who pursued "beauty of use" and pushed Japanese folk art pottery into the art of the world.
This work was purchased from the Yasugi collection, which is the hometown of Kanjiro. This is a person who has been a matchmaker by Kanjiro.
There was interaction until later years, and the photographs were carefully pasted on the cover paper and preserved. In addition, it is a masterpiece that was exhibited in the "Yanagi Soetsu Folk Art and Masters Exhibition" commemorating the 110th anniversary of the Fukushima Minyu Shimbun, and was also posted on the poster.
Japanese paper with the exhibition number is pasted.
It is a work of Kanjiro's whole body, which is one size larger than usual.
Please enjoy the majestic style.
