About the Exhibition
Japan’s contemporary ceramic artists draw on traditions begun thousands of years ago as they create containers for the presentation of flowers. Inspired in part by Japan’s distinctive ikebana flower arranging styles, the extraordinary ceramics on display in Designed for Flowers: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics exist in unique harmony with these floral traditions. With dramatic designs both traditional and contemporary, this exhibition celebrates the works of many of Japan’s greatest living ceramic artists.
About the Catalogue
This catalogue presents one of the finest collections of these contemporary ceramics, brought together over the course of thirty years by Betsy and Robert Feinberg. More than 160 pieces by 100 artists showcase a stunning diversity of styles, unified by their engagement with Japan’s long ceramic tradition.
