Mino Tea Wares: Kiseto, Setoguro, Shino, and Oribe
Ends in 21 days
New forms of ceramic works designed for use in the Japanese tea ceremony were created at kilns throughout Japan during the Momoyama period (late 16th century– early 17th century). As part of the trend, potters in the Mino area (present-day Tono District) of Gifu Prefecture produced and distributed large quantities of tea wares that are powerfully formed, vividly colored, and novel in design that came to be known as Kiseto, Setoguro, Shino and Oribe wares. At this exhibition, enjoy the vivid energy and unique fascination of Mino ware. At the same time, renowned works formerly owned by modern collectors and major works by modern-era ceramic artists Toyozo Arakawa and Tokuro Kato will convey how interest in and evaluation of Mino ware has grown since the modern era.
