Ends in 24 days

*Toguri Museum of Art is temporarily closed from January 20.

Round and square. Shaped like flowers, leaves, gourds, birds, rabbits, hats and fans. Long, thin necks. Broadly rounded bodies. There are all forms seen in Imari ware, Japan’s first domestic porcelain, which arose at the beginning of the 17th century in Arita, in what is now Saga Prefecture. Imari ware made during the Edo period is generally referred to as Ko-Imari. Presented in two parts, this exhibition of seventy highlights from an earlier exhibition explores the great variety of shapes seen in Ko-Imari, approaching the subject from different angles including function, decorative design, and the various techniques mused to build a form.
