Mihara Ken -Japan Ceramic Society Award Exhibition at Wako Department Store

As many of you have happily witnessed, Mihara Ken (三原研 1958- ) was the buzz word during last May's SOFA New York, with all 23 stunning works effectively sold out, and with two works acquired by the Los Angeles County Museum and the Yale University Museum of Art.

Together with consecutive purchases by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY) and the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), along with receiving the prestigious Chanoyu-no-Zokei (Tea Forms) Exhibition Grand Prize and the Japan Ceramic Society Award in 2008, Mihara's growing stature both internationally and domestically is both impressive and dramatic, and calls to mind the rapid rise to fame of such well-respected artists as Fukami Sueharu and Kakurezaki Ryuichi.

In regards to the latter award, Mihara Ken, together with Tokoname extraordinaire Koie Ryoji (鯉江良二 1938- ) who receives the JCS Gold Prize, will be holding an August exhibition in Ginza in commemoration of this recognition.

Toku Art, together with Yufuku Gallery, will be presenting previews of the new and - in many ways historical - JCS works to our clients. If you have not contacted us before and would like a preview, please email us at info@toku-art.com.
