There is a long tradition in Japan of multi-generational families at well-known kilns producing stunning, functional ceramic vessels, often tea related. This talk will examine the growing number of Japanese ceramicists who have severed ties to Japan's long history of ceramic making to create new forms and to invent new techniques. We will explore what the conscious rejection of tradition means in the context of Japanese art and explore parallels in other media where artists cut the ties that held them tightly within the framework and aesthetic boundaries of traditional art making.
