Feather Patterned Mug by Mishio Suzuki
Mishio Suzuki is a potter based near Kasama in the traditional ceramic region north of Tokyo.
She demonstrates the intricacy and care within her work with this feather patterned mug - with its hand completed patterning.
Mishio Suzuki was inspired initially by German and European product design.
But by travelling in Europe she came to appreciate more the pottery tradition in her own region of Kasama in Japan.
Carrying with her the diverse range of influences she acquired, Suzuki trained with the Kasama master potter Akio Nukaga, before establishing her own kiln in 2006.
This mug is 9cm high, with a diameter of 9.5cm.
The handle is 3cm, and the piece weighs 200g.
