"Earth Mind - ceramics"
2016.4.23 [Sat] - 5.15 [Sun]
A solo exhibition by William Vogler, an American potter who lives and works in Takamatsu City, Japan. Living in and between two cultures, West and East, Bill has long had a passion to create objects from the earth, expressions beyond language. These sophisticated forms, beautiful and practical, glowing with his original glazes, reflect Bill’s ongoing search for color, form and texture. An amalgam of Japanese tradition and American creative dynamic, California coast energy and Kagawa earth roots, his works appear as if by magic on the wheel. Please come and see these sensuous and powerful vases and pots, highly awarded at numerous international exhibitions.
