This exhibition introduces twelve remarkable contemporary artists — all born in the 1970s onwards — who produce craft works that are rooted in Japanese aesthetics. They suggest new trends in contemporary Japanese crafting and offer visitors an opportunity to ponder what the future holds for these ancient arts passed down through generations.
