Ceramics & Pottery

Japanese folk art focuses on function and beauty that include forms that are often quite rugged, and compellingly abstract in a way that only ceramic and pottery can be. The most notable styles of Japanese ceramics are: Arita ware, Sato ware, Mino ware, Takoname ware, Sigaraki ware, Bisen ware, Karatsu ware, Kutani ware and Banko. These objects range in the form of figurines, tableware, small serving pieces, jars, sake cups, Ikebana vases, as well as tea bowls and tea ceremony accessories.
