Konno Tomoko. Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz Collection.

A human organ, a crushed beer box, a creature made of plants, a small tornado––these are all descriptions of ceramic works created by contemporary Japanese artists. In Radical Clay: Contemporary Women Artists from Japan, ceramicists move beyond practical forms to create sculptures that are often curious and always captivating.

Join Janice Katz, Roger L. Weston Associate Curator of Japanese Art, for a member-exclusive discussion of this stunning show.
