History of Japanese Ceramics Slide Lecture Series







CER051 5 Weeks John Baymore (Lowell building room 101)




Wed. 7:00 – 8:30 pm (July 11 – Aug. 8)



This series of slide lectures will explore the cultural context in which this art form developed and currently thrives, including the impact of Japan's rugged geography, its war-torn cultural history, the effects of isolationism, deeply held Shinto and Buddhist beliefs, the lifestyle of the Samurai and merchant classes, and the impact of the Tea Ceremony on the art. We will also look at the production of the so-called Six Ancient Kilns, delve into the Mingei Movement, look at the work of the Living National Treasures, and explore contemporary trends as a new crop of artist-potters attempt to throw off the shackles of centuries of tradition. Finally, we will look at how Japanese ceramics had an impact on many contemporary American artist-potter’s works, and how Abstract Expressionism has impacted many Japanese ceramists.




This five-session evening class is a natural companion course to the “Making Handbuilt Chawan†studio course held on the afternoon of the same day. There is a one hour break between the classes that allows for dinner.



*This class is a non-academic distillation of much of the content of John's undergraduate BFA 400 level art history course offering.



Prerequisite: None. Limit: 12
