A perfect example of the post-war move toward minimalism in this hand formed copper vase enclosed in the original wooden box titled Uchidashi Hana-sashi (hand beaten Flower receptacle) signed Toshitaka followed by a red seal reading Toshi. The vessel has been made of hand beaten copper tinned entirely within, while outside the tinning alternates with equal bands of ji-gane copper. The base is marked by the artist. It is 12 x 17 x 26 cm (5 x 6-1/2 x 10-1/2 inches) and in overall excellent, original condition.
