Crafting Beauty in Modern Japan


Crafting Beauty in Modern Japan features some of the most beautiful Japanese art-crafts produced during the past fifty years including ceramics, textiles, lacquer, metal, wood, bamboo, glass and dolls.

The exhibition presents works by members of the Japan Art Crafts Association (Nihon Kogeikai), many of them designated 'Living National Treasures' in Japan, a title conferred by the Japanese government on exemplary individuals who carry on Japanese traditions. Crafting Beauty will demonstrate how the beauty, skill and modernity found in these contemporary pieces draws on the strength of traditional crafts skills.
