Maeta, who has been fascinated by porcelain since his time at university, initially created works inspired by the classical forms of Kenkichi Tomimoto’s white porcelain vessels, but from there gradually developed a strongly formative style incorporating his own original designs. One of the prize-winners at the 11th Japan Ceramic Art Exhibition, this work can be considered as a benchmark in Maeta’s early efforts in ceramic design.
