Shortly after studying in Japan, and while teaching at the Cleveland Institute of Art in the 1950s, Takaezu launched her signature series of closed vessels applied with painterly glazes. Constituting her primary output for nearly a half century, these works reveal her combined interests in Western and Eastern philosophies and aesthetics.
