Japanese Studio Ceramics of the Meiji Period

This talk will focus on new developments and techniques in porcelain decoration in Japan in the Meiji Period (1868-1912) following the opening up of Japan to the West at the end of the Edo Period (1603-1868). This was a fascinating period in Japanese art and design, due to the newly introduced Western technologies and chemistry, and the opening up of new markets. The talk will be followed by a handling session where we will explore these new techniques by looking at examples from a private collection coming up for sale at the “Asian Works of Art” auction at Leonard Joel on 24 May. After the talk and handling session, members will have the opportunity to view the auction if they wish.
