The strength of Japanese ceramics lies in its longevity. For century upon century handcrafted ceramic masterpieces have been made to underpin the very fabric of formal and informal cultural engagements in Japanese life. As it has always had a central role to play deep within the culture, the standards and traditions have resulted in works of unrivalled wonder and accomplishment.
For this longevity to have survived relied in a large part on the family legacies that sought to preserve and move forward ways of cajoling earth and fire. This exhibition opens a window to such legacies showing contemporary works of the father and the son.
