Yoku Moku Museum
Museum in The Omotesando, Aoyama area
The Yoku Moku Collection is one of the world's most comprehensive Picasso ceramic editions.* The notable feature of Picasso's edition is the craftsmen's faithful realization of the shape and effect of Picasso's unique piece by using the mold and potter's wheel. They even reproduced the form and impact of Picasso's unconventional techniques. Picasso went into high gear on ceramic manufacture in 1947 following WWII. For these works, he collaborated with Georges and Suzanne Ramié at their Madoura workshop in Vallauris, southern France. His ceramic work continued until his death in 1973. The Yoku Moku Museum houses Picasso’s unrivaled record of works made of clay. It includes some large-scale works which cover a broad range of serving dishes produced in editions, including bowls, jugs, dishes, and platters, also some exquisite large vases.
