San Diego Potters/ Japanese Influences


The Japanese Friendship Garden presents an exhibition of work by members of the San Diego Potters' Guild highlighting the influence of Japanese ceramics, historical and contemporary, on the work they do today.  Like studio potters everywhere, Guild members borrow Japanese forms, techniques, and glazes, and find inspiration in the characteristically Japanese embrace of nature, its accidents and imperfections.  San Diego Potters / Japanese Influences explores how millennia of Japanese ceramic history live on in contemporary San Diego studios.

 The San Diego Potters' Guild is a working clay studio, an association of San Diego-area potters, and a retail gallery showcasing their work, at Studio 29 in Balboa Park's historic Spanish Village Art Center for over half a century.  The Guild is open daily all year round, with one of the 40 members always available to demonstrate or answer questions.  Themed exhibits rotate in the gallery and semiannual sales in June and November fill the Spanish Village patio with thousands of pots.
