This event has ended.
This exhibition is the latest in Kei Tanimoto’s solo shows presenting his “Since Ancient Times” series of works. The 2015 exhibition newly introduced aspects of two-dimensional art to ceramic objects “Inspired by images of dotaku (ritual bronze bells), unearthed in a decayed state from ancient ruins,” and fired to express fresh interpretations of the three most distinctive features of old Iga ware, which are “hiiro” (“flame color,” a description of the reddish hue of the body), “koge” (scorch marks), and “bidoro” glaze (a type of natural wood ash glaze formed by firing). The present exhibition takes the two-dimensional approach further by adopting the form of flat ceramic panels.
