Oribe by its very nature has a history of playfulness to it dating all the way back to the Momoyama era and when you combine that with the whimsy and creative force of a modern potter you can easily hit a homerun. Illustrated is a playful yet dynamic mizusashi by Suzuki Goro that is a near definition of what Oribe (GOribe) is all about. The radically textured mizusashi is cloaked in varying hues of green due to the complicated topography of the piece while the form appears carefully balanced and stacked with ever so casual lugs applied to either side and topped with a lid with a visually dominating and highly functional lid and knob. Every pot from Suzuki Goro is a surprise, each unique and conversant in a multitude of visual languages running through his body of work is wit, whimsy and a playfulness that is not often seen in ceramics that find their foundation in the art of the Momoyama era.
