Potter's Talk with Hideaki Miyamura

Sunday, 8 April 2018 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM

Pucker Gallery, 240 Newbury Street, 3rd floor, Boston, MA 02116

Hideaki Miyamura was born in Niigata, Japan, and traveled to the United States to study art history at Western Michigan University. After college, he returned to Japan in 1987 to pursue his interest in ceramics as an apprentice with master potter Shurei Miura in Yamanashi. Stemming from his interest in rare ancient Chinese tea bowl glaze, Miyamura seeks to create glazes that have a three dimensional quality and convey purity and peacefulness. His vessels are pristine, disarmingly simple, contemplative objects whose finishes reflect the panoply of the natural world - geologic phenomena, star-filled nights, undulating ocean waves, and fiery sunsets. His work is included in numerous public collections, including the Asian Art Museum of San Fransisco, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.    

The Gallery offers one free hour of validated parking at the Prudential Center Garage. The garage driving entrance is located on 79-99 Exeter Street. Validated parking is not available for private events after 5:00 PM. The two nearest MBTA stops are Hynes Convention Center and Copley Station on the Green line.
