Ken Mihara’s “Sei (Awakening) II – Memories in Clay” is an exhibition featuring the second collection of works in his latest series. With 15 new pieces, this exhibition further exemplifies the artist’s diverse compositions and hues.
Pristine forests, rugged ravines, gentle rivers, and quiet mountains. Such are the landscapes steeped in the mysticism of ancient Shinto lore that artist Ken Mihara witnessed as a child. Mihara’s solemn stoneware are borne and influenced from these deeply idyllic environs. With acquisitions by over 40 leading institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museums, Mihara’s unglazed, multi-fired works have captivated a global audience, propelling the artist to become one of the premier artists within contemporary Japanese ceramics.
