A dry Lacquer Yellow Vase by Izumi Atsuhiko enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Kanshitsu Kaki (Dry Lacquer Vase). This piece is a quintessential example of the mid-century design aesthetic that swept postwar Japan in the 1950s, a period quite unique unto itself. The vase is made in a free-flowing form without a solid core, a labor intensive process in which the shape is rendered from cloth, paper, lacquer and tonoko. This vase is 27 cm (11 inches) tall and in excellent condition. Izumi Atsuhiko (1915-2005) was trained in the plastic arts under the legendary Rokkaku Shisui.
