The Xiem Gallery in Pasadena, California, is very proud to host a unique and thoughtful exhibition of works by Japanese American ceramicists, selected by Mary Ichino. The "Yakimono" exhibition will feature the work of 11 Japanese American ceramic artists specifically to honor the contributions these artists have made to furthering the art of ceramics in the United States. Mary Ichino, who is coordinating this ambitious project, is an accomplished studio potter of note and has also worked as an instructor, art consultant and ceramics technician during her 40-year involvement in the field.

The artists featured in the Yakimono exhibition are 2nd and 3rd generation Americans of Japanese ancestry, most of whom live in Southern California. Each of the selected artists is individually established in the field of fine art ceramics. They are educators and fine arts professionals. The work of each of the 11 artists is widely shown and collected. However, never before have all 11 artist been shown together in a group show allowing for a unique chance to experience the power and significance of their shared experience and individual perspectives. This group show reflects great diversity of technique and influence and offers an exceptional opportunity to explore the parameters of Japanese American ceramics sensibility.

Don and Linda Asakawa
