The Techniques & Beauty of Contemporary Pottery — Six Master Potters
19 September (Thu) to 24 Dec (Tue), 2002
This exhibition featured twenty-seven works by six master ceramic artists. Among these were four designated Japanese living national treasures, including Tamura Koichi (tetsue, Iron brushwork pottery), Shimizu Uichi (tetsuyu, iron glaze pottery), Matsui Kosei (neriage-de marbled clay pottery), and Suzuki Osamu (shino, white glaze pottery). The other two were Yagi Kazuo, well known as one of the standard-bearers of Japanese avant-garde pottery, and Kamoda Shoji, the genius pottery craftsman who died tragically at the young age of forty-nine.
