Abstract:

"TOUCH FIRE, featuring the brilliant ceramic creations of contemporary Japanese women artists, is an exhibition that strongly relates to Smith College's mission to educate women of promise for lives of distinction. These artists, both literally and figuratively, have broken the mold of a centuries-old, male-dominated tradition of ceramic art in Japan and did so aided by new access to higher education after World War II. Departing from a long tradition of tea wares and largely excluded from the apprentice system, these women make a range of objects and sculptural forms. During Japan's long history of ceramic production, most women involved in making ceramics, with notable exceptions, were consigned menial tasks and were not allowed to touch kilns where works were fired."--Amazon.
