Ceramic Artist Seimei Tsuji: The Beauty of Akaru Sabi
Contemporary ceramic artist Seimei Tsuji worked primarily with yakishime, a high-fired, unglazed stoneware, using clay from Shigaraki in Shiga prefecture. His distinctive approach and exceptional choice in raw materials gave rise to its own style, known as Akaru Sabi. This exhibition, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of his death, presents some of his finest masterpieces, many from his own private collection. Also from his collection are ancient earthenware from Peru, as well as works by Takeo Yamaguchi and Peter Voulkos.
