About

Ōhi Toshio Chōzaemon XI is the 11th generation head of his familys lineage. He illustrates this legacy of Ōhi ware in bowls and other items for tea ceremonies, both utilitarian and purely aesthetic. Ōhi earned a master’s degree in fine art from Boston University and in addition, his many opportunities aboard enabled him to develop his own perspective and understanding of his family’s Ōhi ware. His sharp forms and nuanced colors are the results of both the long Ōhi ware tradition and the artist’s inspirational journeys around the world. In 2015, he received the Japan Prime Minister Award at The 54th Japan Contemporary Kōgei Exhibition, which was held at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum in Japan.
