Kawase Shinobu (b.1950)
Born in Oiso in Kanagawa Prefecture. Kawase Chikushun (1923-2007), his grandfather, was also an established potter famous for his work in the style of Chinese porcelain. Shinobu started his apprenticeship under his father, the second generation Chikushun when he was 18 years old. Working on overglaze enamel or underglaze blue porcelain in his family workshop,
he presented his celadon ware for the first time when he was only 19 years old. Since then
he has continued his mastery of celadon ware. In 1981 he won a Japan Ceramic Society Prize and in 2013 the Gold prize awarded from the same Society.
He is now regarded among the most outstanding potters working in the Chinese tradition of celadon. Not only he excels in his organic, flowing forms inspired by nature but also in a variation of glazing techniques explored in his recent work.
