By Appointment is best. You might get lucky just popping by, but a great deal of the month I am out visiting artists or scouring up new items, so days in the gallery are limited.
In accordance with the request of local authorities our gallery in Kyoto will be closed from April 1st until further notice.
Suzuki Soji Modern Japanese Pottery Koro Incense Burner
Please refer to our stock # 1574 when inquiring.
An incense burner decorated with gold and silver veined autumn leaves over crackled ice-like glaze by Suzuki Soji enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Kinginsai Kusabana Mon Koro (Gold and Silver Colored Floral Incense Burner). It is 12.5 cm (5 inches) diameter, 14 cm (5-1/2 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
Suzuki Soji was born the first son of potter Suzuki Kiyoshi in Kyoto in 1939. A prodigy, his first pieces were accepted at the Kyoto Prefectural Crafts Exhibition in 1951 (he was 13 years old!) where he would later receive many awards including gold prize. He graduated the Kyoto Municipal Art University in 1961. His international reputation was sealed when he took Gran Prix at the Brussels World Expo in 1967. That same year his father passed away. The following year he was accepted into and awarded at the Nitten National Exhibition, and he exhibited there consistently, receiving many awards over the coming years. In 1973 he exhibited for the first time with the National Modern Crafts Exhibition (Gendai Kogei Bijutsu Ten) and received two awards and has also been exhibited at the National Traditional Crafts Exhibition (Dento Kogeiten). His list of awards and exhibitions is too great to be summarized here.
