Beauty of Earth and Fire

Summer, 2018

The Art Complex Museum
189 Alden Street, Duxbury, MA 02331


"Beauty of Earth and Fire” is a small exhibit featuring an impressive selection of Showa period (1926-1989) Bizen ware from The Art Complex Museum’s permanent collection. Bizen ware is a type of Japanese pottery that is indigenous to Bizen province. It is characterized by its dark grey stoneware body that generally fires to brick-red, brown, or deep bronze color. Bizen is fired for a long period in the kiln without glaze, creating subtle gradations in distinctive coloring.

The exhibit will be displayed in the museum’s entry case in the lobby as well as in the museum’s Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Library throughout the summer.
