Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is a unique art object by the famous Japanese potter, Fujihira Shin.

History of the Object
Fujihira Shin (born 1922) is a Japanese artist active in Kyoto, who became famous in 1955 when one of his works was accepted for the prestigious annual Nitten art exhibition. He has several prizes to his credit and in 1973 was nominated professor at the School of Fine Arts in Kyoto. Fujihira Shin likes experimenting with form and colour, drawing lavishly from Chinese and Japanese traditions. His ever-present hallmarks are hiratsuke – figural or ornamental designs incised in a clay body, with motifs ranging from birds (like on the vase from the Museum collection) or horses to flowers, figures of children, to abstract ornaments.
