RED EARTH: New Work by Ogawa Machiko, Joan B Mirviss LTD
Concludes October 28, 2022

Ogawa Machiko is one of the most celebrated ceramic artists today, male or female. She won the Japan Ceramics Society Award in 2000 and their Gold Prize in 2018—one of only three women to be so honored by this prestigious institution. Evoking the geological cycles that have long informed her works, RED EARTH brings this venerated artist full circle to her origins. Her latest solo exhibition at Joan B Mirviss LTD is inspired by the Japanese concept of the vessel, utsuwa, as well as by the unique red-colored earth of Burkina Faso, West Africa, where she lived as a young woman for several years.
