History of Japanese Ceramics New Hampshire Institute of Art Sharon Art Center Campus CER051 Nov 3 â€“ Dec 8, 2015 (6 weeks) Tuesdays, 6 â€“ 7:30pm Professor John Baymore $149 This series of slide lectures will explore the cultural context in which this art form developed and currently thrives, including the impact of geography, deeply held Shinto and Buddhist beliefs, the lifestyle of the Samurai class, and the impact of the Tea Ceremony on the art. We will look at the production of the Six Ancient Kilns, the Mingei Movement, the work of the Living National Treasures, and look at contemporary trends as new artist-potters throw off the shackles of centuries of tradition. Finally, we will look at how Japanese ceramics had an impact on contemporary American artist-potterâ€™s work, and how Abstract Expressionism impacted the Japanese ceramists. (This is a bit similar in content to the full credit-bearing degree level course bearing the same course title. Without the heavy readings, papers, and exams!)
