Crafting Beauty in Modern Japan

FTPost a comment • 617 views

The above is the title of a rather lovely new show at the British Museum (open until October 21st), exhibiting I believe a hundred works from the last fifty years or so in various crafts categories. There are lots of spectacularlt beautiful pieces, particularly in ceramics, lacquerware and kimonos. It’s only a fiver, and very much worth visiting.

Trouble is, I came away dissatisfied with the accompanying wall text and labels.
