Traditional crafts that have been passed down from generation to generation in Japan. The technical prowess has been highly evaluated in the world, and “shokunin katagi” (craftsmanship) is a word that represents Japanese manufacturing.

The works on display highlight the specialized skills of contemporary kōgei artists working in clay, glass, and fabric.
