Detail: Rich in variety, the ceramics have enriched people’s lives with their unique forms and exotic designs. Not only are they rooted in the local cultures and climates, but they have also created fascinating cultures as people from Asia and Europe have interacted and been attracted to each other’s beautiful decorations and techniques. This exhibition invites all to the world of the beauty of ceramics born through the exchange between the East and West throughout the ancient to modern times, including Japanese, Chinese, Islamic ceramics, Meissen and Sèvres porcelain, as well as works of artists like Tomimoto Kenkichi (1886-1963) and Itaya Hazan (1872-1963).
