Shigeo Shiga is considered one the most significant living Japanese ceramists. In 1966 he came to Australia where he lived for thirteen years. During this time he experimented with local clay and glazes in response to the Australian landscape and had a profound influence on Australian ceramists. This focus exhibition presents a selection of Shiga’s work from the Gallery’s collection.
