BIOGRAPHY: Suzuki Goro has developed a unique way of expressing himself through ceramics, basing his work on traditional styles from the Mino tradition: Shino, Oribe, yellow and black Seto and the Karatsu tradition. His works, which have a strong sense of individualism, include tea bowls with colorful painted imagery from contemporary life inspired by a visit to Los Angeles. He is also known for his life size chairs as well as being a master of more traditional pieces. In 2002, Suzuki Goro received the prestigious Japan Ceramic Society Prize.
