Cross shape wall flower vase
A very soft milk white glazed wall flower vase by Japanese potter Masanobu Ando. The cross was inspired by the many crosses found in the homes of old European cities, and although the cross doesn’t hold any religious significance for Masanobu Ando, the form itself has an incredible iconography. This flower vase holds a memory of these old European homes, and an added function of hanging a single flower branch in the vases reservoir. The wall vase holds water without any issue.
Masanobu Ando is a ceramicist and Tea Master based in Tajimi City. Masanobu Ando graduated from Musashina Art University under their Sculpture program. His focus shifted from conceptual art to a commitment to the Tea Ceremony and creating Tea Ceremony utensils as well as objects of everyday use.
Masanobu Ando creates his own unique glazes using natural materials that begin to oxidize and change with age and use. These glazes can resemble different materials like silver, iron, or rust.
