Select pieces are paired with digital photographs, taken by photographer Taijiro Ito, that highlight their poetic connection to nature. The featured ceramists are closely associated with many of Japan s traditional pottery centers and are supporters of the mingei movement, in which objects of unsurpassed beauty are made for everyday use.
