 Collection Exhibition
 Give Me a Name!

TSUBOI Asuka, Chatter of Women, 2003
    Museum is a place where people can face directly with original artworks.
By carefully looking and feeling the work, we even believe that we can have a
conversation with a piece of art or its author. To encourage the inner conversation
with art, this exhibition suggests you to see the works first, not the description;
we have placed the captions and descriptions away from the work.
    Maybe, you can imagine the name of this work that you have encountered.
In your way, please feel and enjoy the conversation with art. We are more than
happy if you could spend calm time enjoying the work in your own special way.

 Collection Highlights

TOMIMOTO Kenkichi, Jar with four-petal flower pattern,
overglaze enamels, gold and silver,

   This Museum was established in October 2002 in this venue where the
production of Mino-yaki (Mino-ware) ceramics has flourished since the olden days.
Since the opening, the Museum has gathered modern and contemporary art pieces
created in and after the end of 19th century from in and outside Japan with the theme of
“Modern Age of Ceramic Art”.
In our collection, we have been gathering artworks focusing on three main concepts:
(1) “Ceramic art works created by individual artists” in the modern and contemporary
era, (2) “Practical ceramic ware,”where works are created by hand by artists in small
volumes and at a reasonable price for practical use, and (3) “Industrial ceramic ware” in
which we exhibit modern design art works in the genealogy of Art Nouveau and Bauhaus
as well as ceramics manufactured in mass volumes by famous kilns throughout the world
that pursue design and art.
   In this exhibition room, we introduce the main works that represent the concept of
our Museum.
