Blue & White Ware

Don't miss this year-long show, 'Japan in Blue & White,' curated by Meher McArthur (3/25/10 - 3/6/11), at the Pacific Asia Museum, in Pasadena. Be sure to visit the Gift Shop, which has contemporary blue & white ware, especially designed, in porcelain, at Juls Pottery Studio. These pieces are dipped in ash, oribe and Chinese Red hand-made glazes, over designs accented with cobalt oxide.

Recently, one of these pieces was gifted, by the museum, to the Consul-General of Japan, in Los Angeles.
