PROVENANCE: Private Collection, Paris BIOGRAPHY: Kakurezaki Ryuichi is a highly celebrated artist whose exhibitions in Japan often sell out within minutes of opening. Born in Nagasaki on the island of Kyushu, he now lives and works in Imbe, the ancient home of Bizen ware. Having served a long apprenticeship with Jun Isezaki, he established his own kiln in 1985. As an outsider to Bizen he has the freedom to redefine the Bizen tradition creating works are aesthetically different from conventional Bizen wares. Kakurazaki has won numerous prestigious juried shows as well as the Japan Ceramic Society Prize.
