Morimitsu Hosokawa’s (1972) ceramic work varies in their visual language. His

father, Morihiro Hosokawa was a former apprentice to Shiro Tsujimura. The wheel

thrown, Ido style pieces are wide and open, contrasting the seemingly hand built,

rounder tea bowls in Hosokawa’s collection. With each tea bowl, Morimitsu

Hosokawa seems to be carefully considering their surfaces and how the additions of

glaze can enhance or hide the surface of the clay.
