Bringing Ceramic Art from Okinawa into the Modern Era

Pottery continued to grow and transform throughout all of history in Okinawa. Nothing really ever stands still in the field of the arts. This was also true of this kind of pottery of course. The same was true of Okinawan ceramics during the Taisho period.

By this point many people had become familiar with merchandise […]

The Contrasts of Potters in Okinawa

More than anything, the pottery of Okinawa has been distinguished by the high contrast of bright colors as well as its unique indigenous style. It certainly incorporates outside ideas, but stands quite separate from others. What makes the collection at the Mizen Art Gallery so interesting, though, is that it actually is available for […]

Okinawa’s History Shaped Individual Ceramic Art Pieces

Anyone who might have taken a particularly strong interest in the recent exhibition of the pottery of Okinawa at the Mizen Art Gallery is encouraged to send e-mail to us. They can receive the full catalog of pieces in that way. For now, though, it may be fruitful to examine a few pieces from […]

Different Forces Shape Ceramics in Okinawa

As the Mizen Art Gallery has been enjoying the presence of major works of Okinawa ceramic art, it might be a good time for some history. Free and dynamic art styles became widely incorporated into the Japanese artistic movement known as Mingei. This period marked a return to simple and solid concepts.

Mizen Art Gallery Introduces Okinawa Ceramics Collection

Between Thursday April 28 and straight on through May 12, the Mizen Art Gallery will have the honor of introducing a seldom viewed collection of ceramic pieces from Okinawa. It isn’t often that these pieces are put on display outside of the Japanese prefecture by any means. This should therefore be looked at as […]

The Exhibition Wu Wei Showcases the Calligraphy of Yoshimoto Shofu

On April 15, 2016 the Mizen Art Gallery will host the Exhibition Wu Wei, which features the calligraphic art of Yoshimoto Shofu. This won’t be the first time that the gallery has honored this particular artist. Back in 2014 the Mizen Fine Art Gallery was promoting the artist, and work from the artist was […]

Asia Society Promotes Kamakura Period Sculptures

The altogether too brief Kamakura period showcased art that juxtaposed fascinating Buddhist divinities alongside of modern notions of artistic realism. Asia Society recently featured an exhibition that covered this time period in Japanese history, and it featured many different representations of Buddhist divinities in vibrant styles.

Inside the Mind and Techniques of Tomoyuki Hoshino

Tomoyuki Hoshino says that he really gets into the feel of the clay that he works with, and that being aware of the histories and traditions that are involved in the making of ceramics is perhaps the most important thing when it comes to getting him ready for doing work. Harmonizing with the clay […]

Tomoyuki Hoshino Shows Off Anxious Contemporary Ceramics

Tomoyuki Hoshino is no stranger to art exhibitions, but the new show that runs from January 28 until February 11, 2016 at the Mizen Fine Art gallery is something new in its own right. The artist has chosen « Anxious » as the theme for the exhibition, which is an interesting choice considering the fact that […]

Close Look at Fukumoto Fuku’s Ceramics Art Works

Fukumoto Fuku was featured in many places before the Mizen Gallery of Art featured her pieces in person. At one point they had a feature written up on her in Ceramics: Art and Perception, which is an honor in its own right.

Ms. Fukumoto remarked that the use of both exterior white glaze and interior […]
