23473 人間国宝 加藤卓男 (Persia Mizutori pattern Pottery box) KATO Takuo
He was bombed in Hiroshima on a young age and, despite suffering from leukemia, worked on Persian pottery research with his indomitable mental power, and presented various works such as reproduction of Persian pottery and restoration of Shozoin treasure.
Before his death, he won the medal of the Purple Ribbon and was designated as an important intangible cultural property.
Rastersai, Sansai, Blue Glaze and other Persian ceramics are reproduced by our own study, leaving a great achievement.
At the same time, we received the MOA Grand Prize, which can be said to be the highest honor in the ceramic art world, and designated as an important intangible cultural property holder (living national treasure) Takuo Kato.
