Satsuma Ceramic vase by renown ceramic artist Hideki Arakawa. He worked in unique Nawashiro style of ceramic origination from ancient Satsuma ceramic making tradition. Receiver of numerous honorary awards, participant of Nitten, as well as many other prestigious art shows.

While the Japanese Satsuma vase is one of the most popular objects in the field, any work from this period tends to be quite valuable today. While some workshops, like the Taizan or the Kinkozan, continued to produce works into the late 19th century, such works are exceedingly rare and very precious, generally found in museums or in Japanese personal collections.

Pieces like these reflect the austerity of wabi-sabi, being thick-rimmed, minimally decorated, robust pieces, with a focus placed on form, in which the artist ideally disappears into the aesthetic.
