Women have traditionally played only a minor role in Japan’s long history in clay. This exhibition features a selection of works by living emerging and internationally established Japanese women ceramic artists. Pioneering new forms and technical and aesthetic innovations in the medium, these remarkable artists are breaking barriers and forging new ways of creating and thinking about ceramics that reflect changes occurring in contemporary Japanese art and society. The works express the influence of nature, innovations in ceramic making techniques, and a diverse array of practices.

This exhibition draws from the collection of Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz, who have amassed an important encyclopedic collection of major Japanese modern and contemporary ceramics. Their collection of over 1,000 works is the largest, public or private, of contemporary Japanese ceramics outside of Japan.
