Ceramics & Pottery

Japanese Arts and Crafts lie in its devotion to function and beauty celebrating both works of art and functional objects. These folk art items include forms that are often quite rugged, and compellingly abstract in a way that only ceramic and pottery can be. They are rich in texture and muted colors that derive from the use of relatively simple glazes, often splashed or trailed for decorative effect on clay. 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.
