Here are other events that are of interest:

Floating Islands: Ceramic Ikebana Vessels  Exhibition at District Clay Gallery

and lat the Japan Information Center at the Japan Embassy

The exhibition and sale called Floating Islands: Ceramic Ikebana Vessels” is curated by renowned ceramist Akira Satake, featuring ceramic ikebana vessels created by some of the most talented potters working within the U.S. today. Several have lived and studied in pottery towns such as Bizen, Mashiko, and Shigaraki, where they were able to hone their art and bring back methods of making and firing to the United States. All featured potters, including special guest artist Japanese Master Potter, Ken Matsuzaki, share an innate sense of the importance of ma, or “negative space,” a concept integral to Japanese aesthetics. Rumiko will use one of the vessels in her demonstration.

Exhibiting ceramists: Birdie Boone, Peter Callas, Michael Hunt & Naomi Dalglish, Erica Iman, Jan McKeachie-Johnston, Randon Johnston, Ani Kasten, Simon Levin, Ken Matsuzaki, Sangjoon Park, Tim Rowan, Akira Satake, Jeff Shapiro, Catherine White
