Hiroshi Suzuki: silver waves

Media_httpblogpressw1_nfmms

I’ve never seen so many beautiful silver vessels in one place as in Goldsmiths’ Hall this evening. I’ve always loved Hiroshi Suzuki’s flowing, fluid style, and it was fascinating to learn a bit more about it.

Hearing Hiroshi talk was a real treat too. What I hadn’t twigged was that the ‘Aqua Posey’ range which I have long admired is inspired by water, but there are also other pots based on fire, earth, and air.

Knowing their origins, these other vessels now make visual sense, and it helps to see ‘Aqua Posey’ in context as a snapshot in the development and range of a major artist talent.

Quite amazing. The exhibition is free, and continues till 6th March.
