Takako Araki (1921-2004)

Takako Araki

Araki Takako was a very well-respected and collected ceramic artist who pioneered the way for many female artists in Japan. She did many sculptural works, especially of decaying bibles. This slender vase has a passage from the Bible and is a very rare-unique work because it was fired after her passing.  Not much more information on Araki, but her work is unusual and appeals to many and the catalogue niw available at http://www.ftn-books.com shows why
