The initial clash of ceramic artist Julia Nema’s predominantly Constructivist and Bauhaus background with the immediacy, naked materiality and natural imperfection of Japanese aesthetics led her to embark on a long adventure in search of parallel values bridging distant traditions and processes.

In this talk, Prof. Nema will offer both theoretical and practical insights into how she has worked for years to translate the inspiration found in Japanese yakishime ceramics through her own artistic thinking and creation. She will make reference to the rich material on show in the current gallery exhibition Yakishime: Earth Metamorphosis, as well as her own artworks, products and findings from her book Fired up High: Approaches to Wood-fired Ceramics.

Following the talk, Prof. Nema will participate in a discussion on her work and inspiration with Toronto-based ceramic artists Chari Cohen and Chiho Tokita.
