This fully illustrated catalog accompanies the exhibition Kamoda Shoji: The Art of Change, on view at the Minneapolis Institute of Art-the first exhibition of his work outside of Japan. Aaron Rio, Associate Curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, provides a vivid account of Kamoda’s meteoric rise to fame and tireless quest to invent new surface treatments for his functional vessels. Yokobori Satoshi, curator at the Mashiko Museum of Ceramic Art, contributes an essay that reveals. Komoda’s knowledge of historic Japanese ceramic techniques, and posits the notion that Japanese ceramists at least since the 17th century have used clay for aesthetic innovation regardless of whether the final result was to be purely sculptural or functional in nature. The catalog highlights forty-nine works by Kamoda in American collections and also provides a timeline of his life and artistic development, a chronicle of solo and group exhibitions, and an extensive bibliography of publications in both English and Japanese.
