 TWENTIETH CENTURY JAPANESE CERAMIC EXHIBITION AT THE CLARK CENTER FOR  JAPANESE ART & CULTURE in Hanford, California ( ccjac.org; Hanford is located in the south central San Joaquin Valley, CA)

An exhibit by a modern Japanese ceramic artist,  the master porcelain artist Fukami Soeharu is taking place at the Clark Center. Fukami is internationally famous for his  rare stoneware sculptures as well as for his pale blue glazed porcelains. His works  can be found in some 47 international museums. He is considered to be the most famous living Japanese artist in any medium. His blue glaze was originally inspired by Song and Yuan ceramics but his  abstract porcelain sculptures, some over 7 foot high, are a stunning example of Japanese inventiveness and sensitivity. Japanese artists  may build upon the arts  or crafts of neighboring countries but they  develop and transform  their ideas into unique and unsurpassed works of art.   The art of Japanese lacquer  and basket weaving would be another example of this.
