I was sad to hear that Ryoji Koie, born 1938, died recently.

Koie was the wild master potter of Japan, who has been at the forefront of the Japanese ceramic art scene since 1962.

I just saw a quote from Lisa Hammond, which went, "If anyone lived life to the max it was him."

I never met him but, from the stories of those that had, I imagine Lisa's quote to be a perfect one.

Here's an Oribe vase of his that I sold recently.

Another view of the vase and the mark, which wasn't always as obvious.

A large porcelain vase that had originally been exhibited and bought from an exhibition of Koie's work at the Robert Yellin Yakimono Gallery in Kyoto, Japan.

Koie marked his work in various ways during his career but the porcelain vase above has two marks. An impressed RYOJI KOIE, which could be faked and a finger print on the base, which couldn't be.
