Beyond Tradition: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics

Beyond Tradition: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics

Presented by Birmingham Museum of Art at Birmingham Museum of Art

Ceramic art is an ancient and enduring form of creative expression in Japan. Contemporary Japanese ceramic artists are mindful of this tradition, and their works abound with historical references—the types of clay used, glazes, and techniques. At the same time, many Japanese ceramic artists bend and stretch conventions to create new interpretations, challenging traditional Japanese notions about the ceramic medium.

This exhibition presents more than a dozen contemporary ceramic pieces created by Japanese artists, offering new perspectives on centuries-old traditions.
