[陶藝精神 - 日本與香港陶藝展覽] 同時贊美工藝與藝術,它們並行存在,並對人同樣重要。日本傳統陶瓷與香港當代陶瓷兩部份的展覽既遠且近,作品滲透著各自的理念、哲學與美學,展現其陶藝精神。日本陶藝部份秉承匠人傳統一絲不苟的態度,追求工藝的臻境; 香港的部份,藝術家由工藝作基礎開展探討,表述自己與陶瓷、陶藝與當下時代的關係。匠人與藝術家按自己的步代邁向理想。

The exhibition [Essence – Japan and Hong Kong Ceramics Exhibition] is to celebrate both craftsmanship and art, which co-exist and are equally important. The Japanese traditional ceramics and Hong Kong contemporary ceramics in the exhibition seem so different from each other yet they share a lot of similarities. The works permeate their own ideas, philosophy, aesthetics and also display the spirit and essence of ceramics. Japanese ceramic art is based on the meticulous attitude of the craftsman tradition, pursuing the highest realm of craftsmanship. As for Hong Kong, artists take craftsmanship as the foundation to explore and formulate their relationships with ceramics, ceramic art and the society that we are today. Craftsmen and artists stride towards their dreams at their own pace.
