Floral Patterned Pot with Lid by Tomoka Nomura
This small lidded pot was made by Tomoka Nomura. Part of the community of ceramicists centred on the town of Kasama, Nomura’s work is based on a combination of engravings and glaze. The colours that appear are often the result of ash glazes which she ferments in her studio. The engraved surface decoration meanwhile reflects her training with the great post war master potter Tatsuzō Shimaoka, who was renowned for this style. Each piece therefore is a unique work of craft, made with patience, skill and nature as its major influence.
