About the exhibition:

An exhibition of works from three contemporary Japanese artists: one emerging, one established and one woman, as women ceramists are still relatively rare in Japan. The works will illustrate the rich tradition of ceramics in Japan, one of the world’s oldest art forms, and the different regional styles and influences that are inspiring today’s artists.
