Japanese master ceramist Goro Suzuki works in the centuries-old Oribe style. Originally from the 17th century, Oribe ware features simple design motifs based on fanciful combinations of squares, rectangles and circles. The artist adds dipped or poured accents of a green flowing glaze.
The work of Goro Suzuki demonstrates a masterful manipulation of the material and an aesthetic of rustic simplicity. Long admired by Japanese collectors, the work is a favorite of artists and connoisseurs in the United States. Suzuki’s career spans over forty years, from his early days as a production potter through his tremendous success as a revered master ceramist.
Goro Suzuki’s work has been exhibited extensively in Japan, and is included in museum collections in that country as well as the United States. His work is represented in the Japanese Pavilion of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Hetsens Museum in Dusseldorf, Germany, and the Marer Collection at Scripps College in Claremont, California.
