Japanese Ceramics (and one example of Arabic art)
-by Shindô Susumu, Sackler Gallery of Art
-Bowl with Kufic inscription, Iran, 10th c., Metropolitan Museum
-Jômon Vessel, c. 3000-2000 BCE, Freer Gallery of Art. Yes, an object literally thousands of years old. Incredible, isn’t it? Controversy continues as to whether or not pottery was first invented in Japan.
-Araki Takako (1921-2004), Bible with Black Page, Metropolitan Museum. No, that’s not paper, none of it. The whole thing is ceramic :)
-Kondô Yutaka (1932-1983), Footprints of the Buddha, Metropolitan Museum
-Tokuda Yasokichi III (1933-2009), Dish, Ring of Flowers, Sackler Gallery
