About Koichiro Isezaki
The first son of Isezaki Jun, a Living National Treasure, Koichiro Isezaki is a trailblazer who adds a modern and textural twist to his family’s traditional work in Bizen ware. The Breath of Clay: The Life of Koichiro Isezaki’s Contemporary Bizen at Ippodo Gallery was to be his first solo show in New York. It was scheduled to run from March 12 through April 16, but concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic forced the gallery to close temporarily on March 15, three days after the opening.
To see Isezaki’s work virtually, please visit Ippodo Gallery’s website.
