Rice Bowls from the Town of Hasami   Exhibition of 1,200 Rice Bowls

This exhibition uses 1,200 rice bowls made in the town of Hasami in Nagasaki Prefecture of South-Western Japan. Well-known for its porcelain production from historical times, each rice bowl has a unique color and design that exhibits the creative spirit of the craftsmen of the town.
The rice bowls are laid atop numerous box-like foundations which imitate the iconic agricultural landscape of the also-famous terrace rice paddies of the town. The aim of this installation was to combine these two icons of the town in a visual representation. Each of the box-like foundations differ in size and height, making it functional for transportation and recreation in other venues.
