The end of WWII marked the beginning of a radical new era for Japanese ceramics. Opportunities for innovation emerged for clay artists, men and women alike, to create a kaleidoscope of works outside the limitations of tradition. For our next exhibition, Summer Exhibition: Clay Sculpture, Joan B Mirviss LTD has carefully selected a striking group of diversified sculptural works by both established and emerging artists. As catalysts of change in their field, these artists have created works that supersede utility for the sake of form. Come escape the summer heat at our gallery to visit these refreshing artworks and get a glimpse into the future of Japanese ceramics.
