The Ando Collection is a group of works collected by the Ando Fund, which was established with a generous donation from local businessman Shoji Ando for the promotion of art and culture in Gifu Prefecture. Museum of Modern Ceramic Art, Gifu, which opened in 2002, acquired Rudy Autio’s iconic work “Time Piece” (1994) in 2006 as the first work of the Ando collection. Since then, we have collected numerous works through this fund.
In memory of Mr. Shoji Ando, who passed away in 2021, we present here a selection of works from the Ando Collection in two phases. We hope you enjoy this “gift” to the museum and to Gifu Prefecture.

Collection Highlights

マリア・ボフィル≪Untitled≫ 1991-1996年 
Maria Bofill, Untitled, 1991-1996

The “Collection Highlights” is the room that introduces the features of our museum’s collection.
In addition to unique works by individual artists, our museum also focuses on practical ceramic wares intended for daily use and industrial ceramics designed for mass production. This year’s “Collection Highlights” features these utilitarian wares, focusing especially on the shape of cup; one of the most basic forms of ceramic.
Please enjoy the rich diversity of ceramic expression through the form of the cup.
