Pure form: Japanese sculptural ceramics
Member's Price $ $44.95
Pure form: Japanese sculptural ceramics is the first major exhibition in Australia to present the complex narrative of Japanese ceramics which took place in the aftermath of the Second World War and its continuing resonance with contemporary practitioners. The revolution in clay which liberated future generations of ceramicists also gave rise to the first generation of female practitioners who injected a vital new energy and perspective into the ceramics culture of Japan.
Pure form presents this compelling story through a kaleidoscopic array of stoneware and porcelain created from the late 1940s to the present day and includes more than 100 works by over sixty-five ceramicists from public and private collections across Australia. The accompanying publication illustrates all the works and includes essays by leading scholars in Japan and Australia as well as bi-lingual interviews of internationally regarded Japanese ceramicists. Over 250 full colour illustrations.
