After beginning his career in contemporary art in his native Japan, Masanobu Ando, resided in India, where he practiced Tibetan Buddhism. This discipline prompted him to the creation of pottery. Upon his return to Japan, he dismantled and rebuilt an existing tea -ceremony style house and in 1998, he launched Gallerie Momogusa, a living space to showcase his art. His works primarily involve ceramics, sterling silver (silver overglaze ceramics).
Notes for use:
Due to the properties of the clay and glaze, white pieces will absorb the pigmentation of tea, coffee and other substances they hold; adding a distinctive character to each piece over years of use.
Do not place in microwave or oven and avoid dishwasher use as much as possible. Dry thoroughly before storing. Do not clean with wire scrubbing brush. Do not leave food or liquid on the piece for long periods of time. Clean with silver polish when silver turns black after periods of non-use.
