A large vase in the shape of archaic (Kofun Period, 5th century) helmet by Sano Hiroshi displayed at the 63rd Kofukai Exhibition in 1977 and enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shikoro Kin-Kazari-Byo Tsuki Ao Kabuto (Blue Helmet with gold decorative rivets). It is 52 cm (20-1/2 inches) tall, 23 x 27 cm (9 x 10-1/2 inches) wide and in excellent condition.
Sano Hiroshi was born in Jūshiyama, Aichi prefecture in 1930, and graduated the Nagoya Municipal School of Crafts in 1950. He became a member of the Kofukai in 1961 He would consistently exhibit there and be recipient of many awards. Shortly thereafter he began also to exhibit with the Nitten National Exhibition, garnering several awards and mentions there. In 1967 he established a center for the study of crafts and his art became ever more eccentric, delving deeply into form over purpose.
