Rising Dragon: Tokuda Yasokichi IV

March 15 - April 14, 2018
Opening: Thursday, March 15, 6-8pm

 

Tokuda Yasokichi IV continues to keep the standards in traditional pottery alive, passed down generation to generation through her family craft, as her father, Tokuda Yasokichi III, was a very revered Kutani potter and a Japanese Living National Treasure artist. Today, Tokuda Yasokichi IV carries on her father's legacy running the ceramics factory that has been in her family for generations as she continually works on perfecting her own craft.

Artist ( Description ): 

Born in 1961, Tokuda Yasokichi IV succeeded her father Tokuda Yasokichi III after his death in 2009. As a female leader of a traditional potter’s family, she is a remarkable figure in Japan and also recognized in the international arena.

She inherited the techniques and methods of the Tokuda family style of Kutani porcelain production, especially with saiyu glazing whereby the arrangements and gradations of color play a central role in the ornamentation, rather than with the usual pictorial designs of birds, flowers, and figures seen in conventional Kutani wares. In addition, her personal sensibility as a female artist gives her a novel perspective on tradition that is reflected in her diverse choice of colors and unique interpretations of form. Her works are housed in public collections in the United States, including the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indiana.
