The Japan Foundation’s travelling pottery exhibition entitled – The Rising Generation from Traditional Japanese Kilns – has opened at the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum in Hanoi.

This exhibition introduces the works of a total of 35 artists active in seven major traditional kiln sites in Japan.

The artists differ in orientation, including some who carry on long traditions of pottery production while pursuing ever-richer standards in their craft and others who seek to create individualistic works exploring new forms.

The theme of this exhibition focuses on ‘vessels,’ showing how Japan’s ceramic artists understand the function of vessels in pottery, and provides insight into the present situation and the future of Japanese pottery.

The traditional kiln sites represented are: Arita and Karatsu, Hagi, Bizen, Kyoto vicinity and Tamba, Kutani and Kanazawa, Seto and Mino, Tokyo vicinity and Mashiko.
