Yuzo’s career spans over seven decades of exploration using a variety of techniques since his early period, which earned him a place at the important Tei and Bunten exhibitions. Since the mid 1950s his sometsuke (dyed) works have been featured at Japanese traditional craft exhibitions. His motifs, painted on the ceramics in blue glaze, were taken from his studio garden view—the plum, pomegranate and thistle.
Later in his career he produced new works prolifically like the magnificent Mt. Fuji vase over-glazed in red and gold. In 1975 he endeavoured to create (at that time) the world’s largest plate with a diameter of 126 cm and weighing over 100 kg, using the plum motif in sometsuke. The Large Plate is featured in the showcase window of the current museum.
