From February 2 to June 11 the Honolulu Museum of Art has an excellent exhibit of mizusashi from the Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz Collection. I went to see it yesterday for the first time and will be sure to go back again. It's from one of the finest collections of contemporary Japanese ceramics and includes 16 pieces. I enjoyed getting to see them up close and spent over an hour with them. Some of them were especially powerful and I took quite a few photos of them. Still, it's hard to communicate their power through photos so I hope you'll be able to see the exhibit while it's still at the Museum of Art.
I began potting in January of 2012. Because I'm so new to potting, I think I understand the challenges of beginning potters and hope this blog will be encouraging to them and a source of helpful information and comment. I hope you'll join the conversation!
