Tony Marsh (1954; USA)
RETURN TO CONSIGNORS
Blue Fertility Vessel
ca 2001
Porcelain, ht. 7.5, dia. 12.25 in.

Marsh studied at Shimaoka Pottery with Tatsuzo Shimaoka whom Japan named a Living National Treasure in 1996 (see lot 4). From 1978 to 1981 Marsh worked for Shimaoka as a student and apprentice. However when it came to his own vision he did not follow the Japanese style. Rather he made his vessels more open and carefully placing slip-cast elements of nature in their interiors. Marsh is currently the chair of ceramics, California State University in Long Beach.
