Modernist Ikebana Scultpure


A fabulous large brutalist Japanese modern ikebana sculptural vase. Great form on this cross shaped piece which can be displayed upright or on the side (2 different ends are unglazed). Surface is rough glazed stoneware in a mottled turquoise green, with decorative slashes in the clay going vertically. Unknown maker but likely from one of the potteries in Japan that made a lot of these modernist ikebana. Appears to be unmarked.

In good vintage condition, with no major damage. There is a 1/4" chip out of one of the horizontal ends. There are pops to the glaze and purposeful vertical cuts in the clay. Some dirt here and there.

Measures about 17" tall, 9" wide.

PRICE: $500.00
