Museum Boardroom

The ceramic centers of Onta and Koishiwara in Kyushu have a colorful and closely connected history that began with kidnapped Korean potters in the early 17th century. Both types of wares were considered supreme examples of folk ceramics during Japan’s Mingei movement and are appreciated today for their understated charm. Meher McArthur explores the history and distinguishing characteristics of these wares.
