Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, is presenting a virtual lecture by Dr. Laura Allen, Chief Curator and Curator of Japanese Art, on Japan’s Earliest Ceramics. Haunting faces on wood-fired warriors, coiled ropes of clay piled into vessels with saw-toothed grins…Japan’s early ceramic tradition is among the very oldest—and most enigmatic—in the world, dating back thousands of years. Sometimes rough, but never simple, unearth how naturalistic influences and sophisticated spiritual practices are expressed by these flamboyant, eccentric artworks. Fee for members of the museum.
