Contemporary Japanese Ceramics by Living National Treasures and Other Masters

Embassy of Japan in Washington D.C.

The Japanese government has selected Onishi Gallery to organize and present an exhibition featuring Japanese Living National Treasures and other recognized masters in the ceramic field at the Embassy of Japan in Washington D.C. from April 10th to 29th.

Japanese artists, over centuries, have sought to capture genuine beauty by incorporating techniques, sensibilities, and attention to detail with materials of all kinds influenced by their historic roots. This process creates an incessant tension between the old and the new—traditional restrictions hang heavily, while individual artists seek new ways to express contemporary life. New forms, colors and designs from this struggle, never cease to fascinate us.
