From Japan / 25 July - 29 August 2015
This summer Oxford Ceramics will be exhibiting a range of works from Japan. This exhibition accompanies a talk by Robert Yellin on Saturday 25th July.
'Breaking Molds: Potters of Japan that Expand on Traditions'
Traditional pottery in Japan has a rich and long history,
starting with vessels for daily usage, which morphed into Tea wares, and
then some became purely non-functional sculpture objects. Long-time
Japan resident and noted writer-gallerist Robert Yellin will offer a
look at how tradition is expanding and who some of the main artists are
who are breaking the mold.
