  • Thumbnail for Horyuji, view 01, the Chumon
    Horyuji, view 01, the Chumon

    From the nandaimon, the great south gate, one approaches the compound of Horyuji along a very long graveled walk. The compound, proper, is surrounded by a cloister, a walled and roofed walk, which sets the compound apart from the world surrounding it. The entrance to the compound is this great chumon, middle gate, one of the original structures remaining from the late 7th century, when the compound was built. The gate, on the south perimeter of the compound, is two stories high and four bays wide. The outer bays are occupied by sculpted Nio figures, guardian deities of Buddhism. The gate at Horyuji deliberately is not placed perfectly symmetrically, at the center of the south cloister wall. Instead, it is slightly to the west of center, to accommodate the placement of the pagoda and the kondo inside the compound, each equidistant from the north-south walk bisecting the compound.

  • Thumbnail for East Asian Ceramics:  Then and Now, 01 Oribe-ware Ewer.
    East Asian Ceramics: Then and Now, 01 Oribe-ware Ewer. by unknown

    Oribe-ware Ewer, from the early 17th century in Japan, Momoyama Period. The piece is high-fired stoneware, a buff colored body, probably fired in a neutral or oxidizing atmosphere, with the typical Oribe glaze combination of white glaze and a copper green poured on parts of the piece. There is pattern, design, painted on the piece, again, typical of Oribe style wares. The design was painted on the piece with an iron pigment or slip, probably painted on the piece prior to the glaze application. The resulting all-over surface decoration is typical of the exuberant energy of Momoyama art and culture. -- Gift of Robert Allerton, 1959.5 -- This piece was one of ten ceramic pieces in a special exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago, East Asian Ceramics: Then and Now, held July 2 - November 6, 2005. The exhibit was curated by Janice Katz, assistant curator of Japanese Art, and Jay Xu, Pritzker Curator of Asian Art. An overview of the exhibition states, "Contemporary ceramic artists in East Asia continually draw upon their cultures' highly developed traditions. An artist may use a glaze that became popular centuries earlier or experiment with a traditional glaze by changing the resulting color. Contemporary artists also quote wares of the past through form and technique. In this exhibition featuring works from China, Korea, and Japan, pairs of contemporary and premodern objects are on display. In each case, the artist of the contemporary piece consciously adopts aspects of the earlier ware while creating a thoroughly modern work of art."
