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.
