Unprecedented - Joint Ceramics Exhibition on the Art of Neriage
The exhibition ‘Unprecedented - Joint Ceramics Exhibition on the Art of Neriage’ had received numerous positive feedbacks. We decide to extend the exhibition period for a week and exhibit more latest works of the neriage masters. The art of neriage (練上げ in Japanese) was originated in China and spread to Japan and the Western world. It is now one of the biggest trends in contemporary ceramics art.
Neriage, a perfect combination of clay techniques and ceramic art, means using clay or porcelain in two or more colors, delicately adding details and patterns onto the laminated clay, and create swirling and spiraling kind of works especially after throwing them on a wheel.
In this exhibition, we will show case the finest neriage works across period, from Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Each participating artist has his/her own unique neriage style. For example, we have neriage master Kamio Ogata who uses hundreds of coloured clay in a single piece of work and creates the unprecedented illusionary works with movements. Ceramists Sachiko Umezawa and Mika Sato are both taught by one of the most renowned neriage masters, they create the one-of-a-kind translucent porcelain works. We are also proud to present Taiwanese artist Ted Wang’s thin porcelain works with joyous colors and patterns. We also exhibit some of the vintage neriage works from Japan so as to enrich audience’s knowledge in this specific form of art.
Neriage, an art with over a thousand years of history, is now entering its new era with more and more new styles of work, shining in different parts of the world. We sincerely invite you to come to the exhibition and close appreciate the one-of-a-kind neriage artworks.
