This exhibition features works by three generations of the Kyoto-based Kondo ceramic dynasty. Ranging from traditional porcelain vessels to meditative sculptures cast from the artist’s body and accented with a “silver mist” glaze, this compelling exhibition serves as a bridge between the past and the present as well as meditation on the future of Japanese ceramics.
Transcendent Clay / Kondo: A Century of Japanese Ceramic Art was made possible by the Collection of Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz with support from the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts; the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council; the Miami-Dade Mayor and Board of County Commissioners; the City of Coral Gables; Beaux Arts Miami; Lowe members; the Japan Foundation, New York; the Cowles Charitable Trust; the Funding Arts Network; and Abbey Chase/Morris Family Foundation.
