Commentary
This is actually one of a group of pieces, created by an international array of artists. These eleven objects came from Japan, Scandinavia, the United Kingdom, Spain, the Czech Republic and the United States. The collection provides students with an opportunity to explore the artistry of some finest potters in the world.

The yunomi is used as a tea bowl. It has no handle as it is meant to be held in the palm of the hand.

The artists’ many different interpretations of the tea bowl reveal the rich diversity that can be achieved within the single form. The works range from highly rustic to sophisticated. Distinctive techniques can be detected when comparing the pieces. For example, the work by Bennett Bean bears gold leaf on the inside and exquisite exterior decoration.

One of our goals is to acquire works from the artists that have been in the Ceramic Annual. Two artists in this group qualify, including Akio Takamoi and Daniel Rhodes.
