Suzuki Goro - Carly Steuck

Suzuki Goro is a Japanese master ceramist and works in many different styles that all rooted to Japanese traditions.  One style she uses is Oribe ware, which features simples design motifs based on fanciful combination of squares, rectangles and circles.  He adds dipped or poured accents of a green flowing glaze at the end.  I find his shapes and work very detailed and the ending product always looks memorizing.

  1. Suzuki Goro is not female : )
    I assisted him with some Tea Bowls once- when he came to visit and have a show with Jeff Shapiro-- who I was apprenticing with at the time-- He is a MASTER!!! Potter

  2. Oops sorry! My resource was obviously wrong, his work is great!
