This event has ended.

Iro-e - ceramic pieces utilizing polychrome overglaze enamels - flourished as a colorful ceramic style during the Edo period (1603 - 1868), represented by porcelain such as Kokutani, Kakiemon and Nabeshima ware, as well as by Kyoyaki ceramics. Fashionable Kokutani designs were adapted for kimono, while design-oriented Kakiemon pieces drew international popularity. Meanwhile, subtle seasonal aesthetics made Nabeshima an ideal gift, and the cuteness and literary features of decorated Kyoyaki are of note. Delight in the multi-faceted nature of Japanese culture through the gorgeous world of iro-e.
