A large Art-Deco stype porcelain basin by Ito Suiko enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Suiban. The basin is 36 cm (14 inches) diameter, 11 cm (4 inhes) deep and in excellent condition. The box lid has been broken in half and was put together with a piece of tape. I have not tried to remove the tape.
Ito Suiko (1894-1980) was born in Kyoto where he was studied in the plastic arts from a young age under Ito Tozan (a member of the prestigious Imperial Art Academy) as well as at the Kyoto Shikensho Ceramics Research Facility (alongside the likes of Hamada Shoji and Kawai Kanjiro). He married the daughter of Ito Tozan II in 1918, adopting the name Ito Suiko at that time. He established his own independent kiln in 1931. His work was accepted into the Nitten National Exhibition among many other important venues and would eventually serve as a judge there. He would receive the Kyoto City Cultural award in 1979. Work by him is held in the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art as well as several works in the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto. In Australia The Hamilton Art Gallery and many other public and private collections.
