Together with masters such as Soetsu Yanagi and Shoji Hamada, who represent the Japanese folk art world, and Kenkichi Tomimoto and Tatsuaki Kuroda, who represent modern Japanese crafts, they have laid the foundations of the Japanese folk craft world and played an active role ..
Kanjiro Kawai, a master of the Japanese folk art world who has been highly acclaimed worldwide, has pioneered a new frontier in modern ceramic art with a profound and simple style pursuing "beauty of use" and won the Grand Prize at the Milan International Exhibition.
This work is his later work, in which the three colors of red, black, and green, which have well-proportioned modeling and outstanding coloring, are struck.
Kanjiro's drug has a unique momentum and strength that his predecessors do not have.
On the day of his drug, he was "sick" in his diary.
Why don't you feel the overwhelming world view of Kanjiro Kawai who pursued "beauty of use" and pushed Japanese folk crafts pottery into the art of the world.
The same work is published in the collection of works by Kanjiro Kawai in the "Kawakatsu Collection" held by the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto.
