“Modern Kyoto Ceramic 2015” is an experimental space created for the pursuit of the pottery symbolizes the age we live in ‘now’. By pursuing “now” in each era, artisans of Kyoto pottery has created signature pottery works of the time throughout its history. This exhibition inherits that tradition, and in bringing contemporary Kyoto potters together allows us to collectively and in the spirit of friendly competition, explore the current state of pottery in Kyoto.  
Kyoto Art Now takes a different theme every year. The theme for this year is the Rinpa school. While respecting the Rinpa genealogy, we also want to discover the expression and individual interpretation which is authentic to Kyoto pottery. We hope that in future, these contemporary interpretations and expressions will be rediscovered, forming another page in the genealogy of Kyoto pottery.

本展は“いま”という時代を象徴するやきものを探求する実験的な場です。 京焼には、その時々の“いま”を精一杯追求することで、時代を代表するやきものをうみだしてきた歴史があります。本展では、その伝統を受け継ぎ、出品作家が切瑳琢磨する事で、やきものの“いま”を切り開いていきます。
毎年異なるテーマにチャレンジする本展、今年のテーマは琳派です。琳派の系譜を学びつつも、京焼らしく個々の解釈と表現に可能性を見いだします。 “いま”という時代の解釈、表現がまた後の時代に再発見され、系譜の一頁へとつなげられることを願って。
