Japan Ceramic Society Award-Winner's Tokyo Exhibition
In Tokyo now at Wako, Ginza is the yearly exhibition of past winners of the prestigious Japan Ceramic Society Prize and Gold Prize until Jan.24th. I'll be going tomorrow and hopefully will have some photos to show. All in all 41 of Japan's finest are showing for a total of about 100 pieces; the announcement card cover shows the works of Living National Treasure Kato Kozo (Setoguro chawan), fanciful figures on a gosu box by Kyoto veteran Fujihira Shin, and an organic-ripe aka-dobe Tamba jar by the ever-talented Ichino Masahiko. Can you guess the others?
