This event has ended.

“Re-Creations” refers to Munemi Yorigami’s unique ceramic style, which involves a sort of scrap-and-build process—create, destroy, kiln-fire, join and re-create. He began to develop this style in 1983 while engaging in a project in which formed clay broke apart right before it was placed in the kiln. Intrigued by the broken pieces, he decided to make a new work based on them. He baked each of the pieces of this new work separately before joining them together, resulting in a breathtakingly beautiful artwork. This exhibition will introduce his new works composed of ceramic and wood materials in combination, in addition to a collection from the “Re-Creation” series.
