    Ise, Inner Shrine, pebble ground of next rebuilding site

    The grand shrine at Ise is rebuilt once every twenty years to assure its purity. There are two sites immediately adjacent to one another. The buildings on the left here, screened by the board fence, are the current shrine buildings, while the pebble covered expanse on the right is where the shrine will be rebuilt next time. The small structure standing on the pebbled field covers and protects, keeps pure, the ground directly under the spot where the sacred imperial regalia will be housed in the honden, the main shrine building, when it is rebuilt the next time.

    East Asian Ceramics: Then and Now. 04, Shino-ware Jar by Rosanjin by Kitaoji Rosanjin

    This Shino-ware jar was created by Rosanjin, a great Japanese ceramic artist of the first half of the 20th century. Rosanjin, a restaurateur by profession, was an "amateur" potter, who bagan making pottery because he could not find ceramic pieces that he felt were what he wanted to use in his restaurant. He often looked back to earlier traditions to find forms, glazes, techniques, and ideas from which to draw in his own modern work. In this piece, obviously, he has referred to the tradition of shino-ware with underglaze iron brush decoration. He has applied them to his own contemporary form, although it is interesting to note the undulations of the rim of the piece and to then look at the rims of many Momoyama and Edo period shino-ware tea ceremony bowls. The brown brushed design on this side of the piece are said to be stylized representations of pine trees; on the other side of the piece are forms suggesting birds. The orangish areas on the surface are areas where the glaze was

    Horyuji, view 08, Five storied pagoda and kondo, from cloister walk

    A detailed view of the lower stories of the Five-storied Pagoda (and west face of the Kondo) at Horyuji, as seen from the slight turn in the cloister walk, as noted in view 07. Note, as in mentioned in view 9, that the first story of the original design has been covered with an added-on corridor surrounding the original first story. This added corridor and its slight roof partially obscure the proportions of the overall structure of the pagoda.

  • Thumbnail for Japanese ceramics: Sake bottle by Fujiwara Yu, modern Bizen potter.
    Japanese ceramics: Sake bottle by Fujiwara Yu, modern Bizen potter. by Fujiwara Yu (1932-2001)

    Sake bottle by Fujiwara Yu (1932-2001), a modern potter in Okayama, Bizen. The piece is perhaps 6 inches tall, made of unglazed stoneware. In the lower right, we see a suggestion of uncovered clay, the dense dark iron red that characterizes much Bizen ware. The rest of piece is heavily covered with deposits of ash from the firing and the crustiness of the surface suggests that perhaps the piece was in a part of the kiln where it was completely buried in charcoal during the firing. On loan from an anonymous collector, R2002.51.1

    Korean ceramics: Jar, Buncheong ware. by unknown

    A modest sized Buncheong ware jar, perhaps 5 inches in height. Stoneware with a white slip that was applied thickly with a coarse brush that left a sense of the gesture of the brush stroke on the surface. The form of this piece calls to mind the similar forms of pieces made in Japan in the 16th century, on the island of Kyushu, by Korean potters, such as those who created Takatori-ware in present-day Fukuoka Prefecture. An example of such a piece may be seen in image soc000146, in the St. Olaf College collection, Asian Take Out. Gift of Mr. Arthur J. McTaggart, 1998.25

    Poster, Changing Roles, Japan, 1998

    This poster was photographed in front of a post office in Japan in 1998. The red triangular motif in the lower left is the logo for the "Peace People Japan." The interesting aspect, of course, is the depiction of a young woman, dressed in uniform, with wrenches in hand as she approaches a helicoptor. While much of Japan remains bound by tradition and roles defined by tradition, there is also far reaching social change occurring, with redefinitions of gender roles, etc.
