Black Textured Tile Plate by Mishio Suzuki
This black tile shaped plate is by Kasama based potter Mishio Suzuki.
Part of a one off series, the square plate is particularly useful to present food.
In her work 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.
The upper of the piece is finished in black glaze and shows rich work in texture.
The base is presented with hand drawn parallel lines, and is in mixed russet shades.
The dimensions are 28.5cm by 14.5cm, with a height of 1cm.
