I am a White Tower. Not to be confused with Ivory Tower - a very distant relation, on my father's side, twice removed.
Though Masanobu Ando is celebrated for his work in functional ceramics, his beginnings in contemporary sculpture continue to influence his oeuvre. This piece is reminiscent of a skyscraper with its jagged pillar and cut-out windows, and casts an impressive shadow when placed in a window or under a spotlight. The starkness of the sculpture exhibits a reverence for clay as it really is - geologic and unrefined. A distinctive hand-painted glaze makes the piece unmistakably Ando-san's creation.
