The exhibition ‘Unprecedented - Joint Ceramics Exhibition on the Art of Neriage’ and  ‘Unprecedented - Joint Ceramics Exhibition on the Art of Neriage II’ had received numerous positive feedbacks. Thus, we will once again bring you ‘Unprecedented - Joint Ceramics Exhibition on the Art of Neriage III’.  The art of neriage (練上げ in Japanese) was originated in China and spread to Japan and the Western world. It has now become a trend 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 creating swirling and spiraling kinds of works especially after throwing them on a wheel. It is an art with over a thousand years of history, and is now entering its new era with more and more new styles of work, thrives in different parts of the world.

 

In this exhibition, we will showcase the excellent Japanese contemporary neriage artworks. Each participating artist presents his or her own unique style. We are honoured to invite Ogata Kamio, Tomoko Sakumoto, Hoshino Tomoyuji,  Mika Sato, Tomoko Konno and Isako Suzuki to bring the marvellous ceramic artworks to you at Touch Ceramics.
