Extra large long-necked urn vase by Tetsuya Ozawa, from the exhibition "Near & Far", November 2023 at DEA EAST.

In this stunning vessel, Tetsuya has artfully combined two of his signature shapes into one unified whole. The base starts with a sensuous urn shape, but then extends upward into a long, slender, elongated bottle shape at the neck, producing an elegant tension between curves and straight lines.

In his signature "kofuki" glaze in black.

height: 49cm
diameter: 21cm

Born in 1984, Tetsuya Ozawa lives and works in the ancient ceramic town of Tokoname, Japan. After studying Fine Arts at Nagoya University, he apprenticed under ceramic master, Yoshikawa Masamichi.

In his work, there is a nod to classicism, restraint and refinement, but with the appearance of lightness and a modern fresh brilliance wrought into his surfaces, which is achieved by his special glazing technique. Called "Kofuki", it's a process whereby white soil is dusted over local Tokoname clay forms after firing, and the palette is restricted to the clay colours of the the region - rust, yellow, white & black.
