"SHAPED WITH A PASSION: The Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Collection of Japanese Ceramics from the 1970s"
2000-06-24 until 2000-08-27
Dayton Art Institute
Dayton, OH, USA

Carl A. Weyerhaeuser was an American collector who had a passion for modern Japanese ceramics at a time when they were not fashionable in the West. Accompanied by Samuel C. Morse, professor of art history at Amherst College, and Louise Allison Cort, curator of ceramics at the Freer and Sackler Galleries of the Smithsonian, in 1972 and 1973 alone, Weyerhaeuser purchased more than 300 pieces by 63 artists from all the major centers of ceramic production in Japan.

The works in the resulting collection range in size from sake cups to large-scale sculptures; there are 244 tea ceremony pieces demonstrating the importance of ceramics within a time-honored public ritual. Within the historically important ceramics such as Hagi, Bizen, Raku and Shino, there is an amazing variety of textures, glazes, form and color. Many of the approximately 120 works highlighted in this exhibition were produced by Japans Living National Treasures. ADMISSION: $5 adults; $3 seniors and students 12 & over; Free for youth under 12 and museum members
