Canberra Potters’ Society artist-in-residence Ryozo Shibata specialises in sometsuke, blue and white porcelain ware, in which he combines his skill in traditional techniques with contemporary forms.
During his residency Shibata has been exploring how differences in the materials, techniques and cultures of Japan and Australia can influence end products.
In this exhibition, which will show work produced during his residency alongside work that he made in Japan, Shibata hopes to provide an opportunity for appreciation of the different cultures of Australia and Japan and to promote mutual understanding of the two countries.
