The Colorful World of Ceramics

Colors are not just for aesthetics in art — they stimulate the imagination and often help understand the artwork itself. For ceramics, color is a fundamental part of a work's form and expression, making the creation of and use of glazes, as well as their manipulation through firing, crucial processes.

In contemporary ceramics, color plays a particularly prominent role in conveying artists' messages. This exhibition looks at works from Japan and beyond, with a selection of vivid pieces by Ugo Nespolo, Zenji Miyashita, Kyusetsu Miwa and others. (Yukari Tanaka)
