Subject:Identifying Ceramic Japanese Vase
Posted By: Rick Sat, Oct 09, 2021 IP:

Hi Forum Members,

I am looking for assistance in identifying the characters found on the base of this "swirl" vase. I am guessing it's a Japanese piece because there is the remnant of a label with the first two letters being JA. Any thoughts on age would also be welcome.

Kind regards,

It's a Japanese vase indeed.
The mark reads Töhö 陶芳.
It's made by Kato 加藤 Töhö, a potter born in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture in 1945.
Exhibited at the Contemporary Crafts Exhibition in 1975.

Thank you very much, Martin! It's helpful to have some background information on the artist, too.

Kind regards,
