Soil to Splendor: The Art of Wood Fired Ceramics From Japan
February 8 – 22, 2024
Dai Ichi Arts, Ltd. is pleased to present their forthcoming exhibition, Soil to Splendor: The Art of Wood Fired Ceramics From Japan opening next Thursday, February 8th.
Yakishime, or, more precisely, ceramics that are unglazed wares fired at extremely high temperatures, stand as a testament to one of the most ancient methods of pottery production in Japan. The tradition embodied in these primordial wares continues unbroken to this day. This exhibition focuses on modern and contemporary interpretations of this primordial craft, where the essence of ash and clay is reignited through new forms steeped in tradition.
This group exhibition invites viewers to savor the aesthetics of “Earthen tastes,” or Tsuchi-Aji through Yakishime ceramics from Japan. Exhibited artists include: Kohara Yasuhiro, Isezaki Jun, Sugimoto Sadamitsu, Mori Togaku, Tsujimura Shiro, Shimizu Keiichi, Yabe Shunichi, Tanimoto Kei, and more.
