Iceland Glazed Flower Vase #50 by Akihiro Nikaido
11” H x 14 ½“ D
Made in Chiba, Japan
Akihiro Nikaido developed a ceramic artist group called “Toh-ism” in order to support the younger artists of today. I was surprised to hear that it was a gathering of people who do not take in disciples and who do not have teachers. It was a surreal humanist experience. He is at the peak of practice of tradition and work of ancient times. His dedication and repetition of the work can be shown through his skill and results.
