“The Cosmos Within: Contemporary Japanese Metalwork and Ceramics” will feature 26 artists who fall into those two categories and within this talented group, 10 artists have been designated “Living National Treasures” by the government of Japan for their contributions to the preservation and transmission of traditional Japanese artistic heritage. These artists include the esteemed Nakagawa Mamoru, Ōsumi Yukie, Imaizumi Imaemon XIV, Isezaki Jun, Itō Sekisui V, Maeta Akihiro, Nakashima Hiroshi, Tokuda Yasokichi III and Yoshita Minori. Additionally, four of the 10 featured metalwork artists are female, offering innovative designs characterized by organic, curved techniques that expand the reach of traditional Japanese creative expression.

The other exhibition “Chashitsu – Japanese Tea Room” focuses on metalwork and ceramic pieces specifically necessary for the Japanese tea ceremony tradition. With the goal of recreating a contemporary Japanese tea room, this exhibition will not only feature the material creations required for the ceremony, but will also include a live demonstration of the special tea ceremony by the Urasenke Chanoyu Center in NY. In addition to our artwork, Akari light sculptures provided by The Noguchi Museum illuminate the chashitsu, creating a perfect environment for a Japanese tea room in New York City.
