Kyocera Gallery/The Kyocera Museum of Fine Ceramics

Highlight
Picasso worked in many mediums and, here, visitors can enjoy his printing techniques

A hall of beauty and a site of leading-edge technologies

On the gallery side, besides special planned exhibitions, the collection includes Picasso’s 347 Series (copperplate prints); contemporary Japanese paintings by Kaii Higashiyama and Ikuo Hirayama; western style paintings by Ryusaburo Umehara and Junji Yoshii; sculptures by Shinya Nakamura and Yasutake Funakoshi, and works of the glass artists of the Nancy group in France, like Emile Galle as well as Qianlong glass of the Qing dynasty in China, both of which influenced cut glass production in Japan.
Whereas, on the fine ceramics side, there are many different sets of products introducing the development histories of the techniques and products created through Kyocera’s vanguard technologies that have propelled ceramic wares forward to the frontier materials of fine ceramics. Furthermore, to put these technologies in context, there are exhibits explaining the legacy of Japanese ceramics from prehistory Jomon wares through to the pottery of today.
