Aimo Koimo 2017: Hasami Ware from Nagasaki
This event has ended.
Hasami Ware from Nagasaki has a long 400-year history as a type of pottery traditionally produced for common people and daily usage. It is now produced in anything from vast quantities to small lots by original equipment manufacturers that employ thorough divisions of labor in its production. Hasami Ware is available nationwide and is very much a part of daily life in Japan. The product itself is more famous than the name of the area in which it’s produced, which seems very fitting; any number of the cups that you’ve used in a cafe or a workplace could be Hasami Ware. This exhibition will introduce you to the diversity of these ceramics and their power to penetrate all corners of daily life - even those unexpected places.
