"The Japanese influence is clearly evident in Vessel, 1956, whose reductive, simple, asymmetrical shape draws strongly on the Japanese tea bowl. Also Japanese in spirit is Voulkos's acceptance of accident, seen here in the dripping glaze, an effect which rejects the perfect surfaces of Scandinavian ceramics. Vessel is an early example of a group of small bowls inspired by the Japanese tea ceremony, which Voulkos first made in 1955 and returned to periodically throughout the 1960s and 1970s."
