bio pt 1

Asian Art Museum collection

Born 1947, Gosei, Nara, Japan

One of the most gifted potters active in Japan today, TSUJIMURA SHIRŌ has a tremendous range of both glazes and forms. Influenced by Momoyama era tea aesthetics, he creates powerful functional vessels that are dramatic, sensual and highly unique. Unlike most of his contemporaries, who closely control the firing process, Tsujimura delights in the unexpected and incorporates chance into his creative process. His work populates the collections of museums throughout the world.
