Stunning Bizen Flower Vase in shape of a gourd by Fujiwara Kazu. Kazu, born 1958, is heir of one of Japan’s most celebrated pottery families. Both, his father, Fujiwara Yū (1932-2001), and his grandfather Fujiwara Kei (1899-1983), were legends for traditionally wood-fired Bizen ceramics and have been awarded the title of Living National Treasure. He has exhibited widely within Japan, including at the prestigious Exhibition of Japanese Traditional Arts and Crafts (Nihon Dentō Kogeiten), and also internationally.
