A group of five distinctive stoneware vases by Japanese Ceramist Koji Toda (born 1974-).
Beautiful hand thrown and each unique. It was Toda’s encounter with pre -12th century bronze water pitchers that inspired him to create his signature works. Sensing the divine beauty that distinguishes medieval period tea utensils and objectified art, he honed his abilities as he pursued the creation of the ultimate in beautiful forms. His exceptional fabrication technique and shaved surfaces result in ceramics that are praised for having the dignified grandeur of bronze. Toda’s symmetrical forms produce a great depth of feeling from the notoriously hard to control and risky wood-fired kiln environment.
