Location: Permanent Collection Corridor
Drawn from the AGB’s Permanent Collection, this exhibition looks at the effect that Japanese ceramics has had on Canadian ceramics. While many Canadians have gone to study in Japan, often heading toward the pottery town of Mashiko, the home of Hamada and Shimaoka, others have been inspired by the work of Bernard Leach who introduced Mingei pottery to the western world.
