Many Shades of Celadon
  

FUKAMI Sueharu

 

    This, one of a kind, elegant large piece by Fukami Sueharu, arguably Japan's most popular ceramic artist, beautifully utilizes the pure bluish-white celadon that is his signature color. The delicate ceramic piece balances perfectly on three small wooden pedestals, seemingly defying gravity and giving the feeling of floating. This weightlessness is accentuated by a slight uplift where the central crease meets the edge of the piece, as if the work is on the edge of flight.  

   The purity of Fukami's impeccable surface is a source of great pride for the artist, one that he feels conveys a sense of transcendent elegance. This piece resembles the form of a lily pad leaf, evoking the peaceful contemplation one finds beside a quiet pond. Fukami's beautiful pale blue celadon ceramics, inspired by Chinese Song Dynasty porcelain, are widely collected and are represented in many museum collections.
