One-of-a-kind decorative ceramic bowl hand thrown by Japanese studio artist.
This piece is great as serving bowl and also as art object
Hand thrown by Takemura Yoshinori, a sought-after studio artist based in Japan.
With this piece, the artist's signature glazes are splattered on the white bowl like abstract painting - Tangerine is very nuanced and light. Midnight blue blurs beautifully into different shades. Bronzes glint with metallic sheen.
This square shaped bowl is sturdy and chunky, heavier than it looks.
Use as a serving bowl, fruits bowl, or just gorgeous as a decorative object.
The process of making is improvisational, and naturally each piece is one-off.

About the Maker
Takemura Yoshinori's whimsical and improvisational style goes happily along with the vast variety of colour he conjures. All his works are porcelain, which he "dresses up with glaze", focusing on "finding the right dress to fit the form". He enjoys these one-off sessions.
Although his works seem to be totally free from any ceramic tradition in Japan, Takemura has a highly expert background of Japanese applied arts. Before turning a full time maker, he has worked as a restorer of artefacts using various traditional techniques, including art of Japanese lacquer.
Takemura is a graduate of Musashino Art University, and completed M.A. of Conservation and Restoration at Tokyo University of the Arts. Based in Chiba where he grew up, he holds regular workshops, punctuated by his own exhibitions.
