The Kyocera Museum of Art Special Exhibition Rin/Ten

The Kyocera Museum of Art will host a new exhibition: Rin/Ten - Encounter of Fine Ceramics and Art from June 9 - July 9.

The exhibition will feature approximately 20 new art works by Jumpei Ueda, an up-and-coming young artist, originally from Sakai, Osaka, now based in Kyoto, who practices arts with "ceramics"and among the exhibited works, most use Kyocera's fine ceramics.

Hou - I (baked-mud) The action of a man’s hands scooping water led to creation of civilization and tools. This work of art is a manifestation of how the artist sees this principle of things.
Fine ceramics (also known as advanced ceramics) are widely used for industrial or electronic components in various applications including automobiles and smartphones, however, they have rarely been used in the arts because they are generally considered difficult materials to process - although aesthetically attractive.

Ueda was excited to take on the challenge of working with a new type of pottery using fine ceramics, and Kyocera hopes to let people see the attractiveness of fine ceramics and their potential in the arts.

As both parties share a similar goal, the company decided to hold the special exhibition to display the works by Ueda. As for the meaning of the special exhibition title, "Rin" is taken from the Japanese words rinkai (critical), rinkaku (profile), or rinsetsu (adjoining); and "Ten" is taken from hanten (return), tenkai (development), or setten (contact). A combination of rin and ten also connotes rin-ten or rinne, which is reincarnation in Buddhism. The exhibition will allow visitors to experience extraordinary feelings created by the works that seem simple at a glance but are actually complex and look inorganic but are actually full of life.
