Arts preview: "Black, White, Grey"

Jim Fischer

An exhibition of the functional ceramic art of Japanese artist Masayuki Miyajima closes Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Dublin Arts Council.

Miyajima, a former apprentice to Shimaoka Tatsuzo (designated a "Living National Treasure" by the Japanese government), has made elegant carved and thrown stoneware and porcelain objects for more than 20 years.

He has had solo exhibitions in Dublin previously, in 2010 and 2013.

Miyajima's visit to Dublin is a part of an established cultural exchange between Dublin and Mashiko, Japan.
