Event description

Description

The Embassy of Japan is pleased to present:

MASHIKO: IMAGINED IN THE UK: the story of how the UK shaped the craft culture of Mashiko

In this exhibition, we explore the relationship between Mashiko and the UK through pottery created in both countries. Some fine works by the late Hamada Shōji and Shimaoka Tatsuzō, both of whom were designated 'living national treasures' by the Japanese government in their day, will be presented alongside works by the 'father of British studio pottery' Bernard Leach. The flow of ideas between Hamada and Leach, and our two countries, will be traced to the modern day through Michael Cardew, Murata Gen, and others, concluding with works by those at the forefront of the Mashiko craft movement: Hamada Tomoo and dyer / weaver Higeta Tadashi.
