Hagi is among the most celebrated of Japan’s traditional wares and played an important part in the evolution of the tea ceremony. The works of the Miwa Kyusetsu dynasty have exemplified the Hagi tradition since 1663, but those of Kyusetsu XII place a modern, even iconoclastic interpretation on the family’s art. Kyusetsu XII discusses his work and role as the 12th head of the Kyusetsu dynasty.

Moderated by Joe Earle, Vice President and Director, Japan Society Gallery.
