“yunomi” ゆのみ teacup without handle, (for) drinking hot water, often used in Minnesota for drinking wine, etc.
This exhibition presents an opportunity to examine the myriad directions that the work of the now infamous Minge-sota group of potters has taken in the creating of the yunomi.
Warren MacKenzie, who was strongly influenced by Soetsu Yanagi and Shoji Hamada, brought Japanese techniques and ideas home to Minnesota. These Japanese traditions were passed on to MacKenzie’s students and emulators. The potters in this exhibition have been influenced to varying degrees by the “Minge-sota” movement (Mingei is a reference to the Japanese folk art movement created by Yanagi) initiated by the Japanese-influenced work of Warren Mackenzie.
