Design Voyeur: Taizo Kuroda Pottery

Issue 22 · Asian Influenced · May 30, 2008

Renowned Japanese potter Taizo Kuroda's white porcelain pieces draw deeply on classic Zen aestheticism. He's been called the Tadao Ando of pottery. Each exquisitely delicate piece is thrown on a potter's wheel and burnished with fine-grade sandpaper to achieve a luminous glow. His work is available in the US from Matin in Los Angeles (starting at $1,500—a major investment). Go to Taizo Kuroda to see his work.
