Ikuhiko Shibata at the Museum Shop

August 23, 2015 - 01:00 pm to 04:00 pm

Museum Shop

On August 23rd from 1-4pm, please join us to meet seventh-generation ceramic artist, Ikuhiko Shibata from Tajimi, Japan. His heirloom one-of-a-kind ceramics: sake cups, sake sets, platters, and bowls are all available in The Shop. Ikuhiko apprenticed with a Japanese National Living Treasure and has had his own studio for twenty years. His commissioned works are in public spaces in his hometown of Tajimi and Cincinnati’s Friendship Park. Mr. Shibata’s work is also shown in prestigious galleries in Tokyo, Nagoya, Hiroshima and Osaka. He has won numerous local and national awards in Japan. In Fall, 2013 the Cincinnati Art Museum added five sculptures in Mr. Shibata’s “White Ruins” series to its permanent collection. Ask Ikuhiko about the traditions of drinking sake in Japan. (For example, traditionally in Japan you drink saké with a friend, never alone), and learn much more.
