Porcelain dish, 'Dawn' 1992
By Tokuda Yasokichi Ⅲ (1933-2009)
The glazes appear almost liquid as they flow across this dish. Tokuda used the traditional colours of the Kutani-style glazes of his region to create a thoroughly modern effect. He was the third generation in a family of potters in Ishikawa Prefecture, where a rich ceramic tradition stretches back to the mid-1600s. Tokuda was made a Living National Treasure in 1997, for his colourful porcelain glazes and the Kutani style.
