Old Imari Ceramics Exhibition

October 8, 2021 - December 5, 2021

Old Imari exhibition at Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum

Items from the collection of the Kyushu Ceramic Museum in Saga Prefecture, the home of Arita ceramics and the more flamboyant pieces which were highly popular in Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries that were shipped from the port of Imari on display at the Prefectural Art Museum in Hiroshima.

Born about 400 years ago, Imari-yaki has fascinated people in Japan and abroad with its diverse styles and perfection. This exhibition features masterpieces from the Kyushu Ceramic Cultural Museum, which has been at the forefront of Ko-Imari research, from the dawn of the pottery to its heyday, as well as from the end of the Edo period to the Meiji period, when it has been increasingly appreciated in recent years.

Read about the history of Imari ware and why it is considered separate from Arita ware on Wikipedia.
