Born of Fire: Contemporary Japanese Women Ceramic Artists
June 24- September 17, 2023
Born of Fire features a diverse selection of fourteen works by both emerging and internationally established Japanese women ceramic artists. Pioneering new forms and technical and aesthetic innovations in the medium, these remarkable artists are breaking barriers and forging new ways of creating and thinking about ceramics that reflect changes occurring in contemporary Japanese art and society. The works are drawn from the renowned collection of Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz, the largest collection of contemporary Japanese ceramics outside Japan, and express the influence of nature, innovations in ceramic making techniques and a wide array of practices.
Born of Fire: Contemporary Japanese Women Ceramic Artists is organized by the Crow Museum of Asian Art of The University of Texas at Dallas
