The Denver Art Museum’s Asian Art Department and the Consulate-general of Japan in Denver are proud to host Takahashi Rakusai V and his daughter Yoshiko, the latest inheritors of a multi-generational Japanese ceramic tradition.
Makers of masterpieces in the distinctive Shigaraki style, with its rustic yet elegant pieces graced with splashes of ash glaze, they will discuss the materials, methods, and aesthetic that have made Shigaraki ceramics famous for centuries.
This Curator’s Circle event is free to the public, but reservations are requested. The lecture begins at 6:30 pm, and will be followed by a reception at 7:30 pm.
