Born of Fire: Japanese Women Ceramic Artists at the Crow Museum of Asian Art
Hosted by the Crow Museum of Asian Art, Dallas, TX
Hayashi Kaku, artist
Futamura Yoshimi, artist
Fujikasa Satoko, artist
Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz, collectors and museum patrons
Join us for a special conversation with Hayashi Kaku, Futamura Yoshimi, and Fujikasa Satoko, three celebrated ceramic artists whose works are featured in the exhibition Born of Fire: Contemporary Japanese Women Ceramic Artists, currently on view at the Crow Museum of Asian Art.
Women have traditionally played only a minor role in Japan's long history in clay. 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. Their 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, which is one of the largest outside of Japan.

Cornerstone of Collecting: Frank Lloyd Wright's Japanese Prints and Their Inspirational Legacy
at the Chazen Museum of Art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
Amy Gilman, Director, Chazen Museum of Art
Laura Mueller, Independent curator of Japanese art
Quitman (Gene) Phillips, Professor emeritus of Japanese Art at University of Wisconsin-Madison
James Wehn, Curator of Works on Paper, Chazen Museum of Art
Celebrated for his genius at both architecture and design, Frank Lloyd Wright was also an avid collector and dealer of Japanese woodblock prints. In the late 1920s, mathematics professor Edward Burr Van Vleck acquired approximately 4,000 of Frank Lloyd Wright's prints, which became the foundation of his own significant collection. This extensive collection of ukiyo-e was eventually donated by his heirs to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he had taught for many years.
In our Zoom panel event, curators and scholars will discuss the legacy of this important collection, its critical role at a teaching institution, and the challenges of stewardship in the 21st century.
