Did You Know?

This double-spouted vase was intended to be a decorative sculpture rather than a functional object.

Description

Toshiko Takaezu reformed the concept of a vessel by minimizing its functionality in her work. Here, the openings of the vase's two spouts are so reduced as to be unusable, becoming a ceramic sculpture rather than utilitarian container.
