09 August 2024 - 20 August 2024

Overview

With its history stretching back to the 7th Century the ceramics of Iga have a long and storied association with the most important aspects of Japan's culture.  The ash glazed, scorched and cracked forms are the progenitors of Japanese aesthetics.  Honest, raw and achingly beautiful, Iga yaki embodies purity and a close, contemplative relationship with nature, in many ways the soul of Japan.

This important exhibition has been curated by the wonderful Iga artist Takashi Tanimoto.

Takashi Tanimoto will attend the in gallery opening on August 10th at 2pm.

The exhibtion lineup will be released during July 2024.
