This event has ended.
Japanese pottery entered Western society at the height of Japonisme - the influence of Japanese art, fashion and aesthetics on Western culture – and is renowned throughout the world for its quality and design. Advances in pottery workshops and other pottery innovations raised Japanese pottery’s popularity at the World Expo and elsewhere, and brought new life to items such as Japanese and Western tableware, architectural tiles and lighting fixtures. This is the first exhibit to allow visitors to experience the abundant originality and energy of modern Japanese pottery, which brought technological innovation and new design techniques and led to the global distribution of mass-produced products.
