Taste of Japan ceramic exhibition


Works by Kyoto-based ceramicist Kasumi Ueba

Waikato Museum will be exhibiting the works of ceramicist Kasumi Ueba from 7 December to 8 March.

The show will introduce an artistic approach very different from New Zealand ceramic art.

Kasumi Ueba, who is one of Japan's leading contemporary ceramic artists, has also been appointed selector and judge of 2019 Waiclay Ceramic Awards and will run a workshop at the museum.

A large wood-firing kiln (Japanese anagama style) will be built to be used during a workshop.
