A one of a kind stoneware vase by Japanese Ceramicist Koji Toda (born 1974-).
"Water Bottle with Lid" form, this wood fired vase has a bold appearance. Inspired by bronze forms from pre 12th century water pitchers.
The beautiful sensibility of ceramics not found in bronzes can be seen in the subtle swelling, shaping of the foot, and single line circling the mouth rim and torso, each aspect revealing the artist’s ingenuity and concentration. The removable lid is shaped with a delicate touch, giving this work of art the perfect fit.
Measures: 8" tall.
