EXHIBITION AT THE FREER/SACKLER/SMITHSONIAN

REINVENTING THE WHEEL: JAPANESE CERAMICS 1930-2000.

Opens July 23, 2011

I have always been fascinated by Japan’s modern looking antique ceramics and antique looking contemporary and modern ceramics. Freer has a large collection of 20th century Japanese ceramics, including works by Living National Treasures as well as by young and more unknown artists.
The piece shown is by Shimizu Uichi (1926-2004); it is a stoneware piece covered with an iron glaze, where the artist “trailed his fingers through the wet glaze.
