    The present lot is one of Sueharu Fukami's earliest examples of this wheel-thrown conical form, which later became known as "Chu" or "Midair." While the present work was titled "Utilitarian and Solid (Opulence)" in the 1986 Togakudo Gallery exhibition in Kyoto, Mr. Fukami has since advised that he currently prefers "Untitled.”
