Quiet Symmetry: The Ceramic Art of Yoshiro Ikeda
April 17, 2012 – September 1, 2012
An internationally known artist in clay and a Distinguished Professor of Ceramics at Kansas State University, Yoshiro Ikeda has for nearly four decades produced sculptural vessels that reflect on an ultimate harmony in nature. Trained at both the Kyoto College of Fine Arts and the University of California, Santa Barbara in the 1970s, Ikeda combines elements of Zen painting with western formalism and the expressive qualities that made California ceramics revolutionary. Honored with state and national awards for excellence as an educator, Ikeda has trained several generations of ceramics students who currently work and teach around the country. “Quiet Symmetry: The Ceramic Art of Yoshiro Ikeda” features work by this master artist from the 1980s to the present which will be on display from April 17, 2012 to September 2, 2012.
