Clay And Bamboo: Japanese Ceramics and Flower Baskets
August 10, 2019 – March 29, 2020
Art of Asia galleries
Featuring recent loans and gifts from Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz and Sanford and Beth Hoffman, this exhibition of contemporary Japanese ceramics examines how artists transcend functionality, gender, and material to create pieces that are modern yet rooted in tradition. Examples of basketry used for ikebana floral arrangements are also showcased and share a similar rustic and natural aesthetic.
Clay and Bamboo: Japanese Ceramics and Flower Baskets is organized by Phoenix Art Museum. It is made possible through the generosity of Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz, Sanford and Beth Hoffman, and donors to the Museum’s annual fund.
