In addition to Endless Circle, the bell outside of the library, and a painting by Japanese artist Tetsuro Sawada, legendary artist Toshiko Takaezu has kindly donated 19 additional ceramic works of her own to Bloomsburg University’s Permanent Collection of Art.

On Friday, September 5, Ms. Takaezu graced BU with her presence in an informal reception honoring her life, work, and friendship with BU.  Along with Karl Beamer, Professor of Ceramics & Sculpture, she sat down to discuss her work, process, life experiences, and philosophy with the BU community. Following the reception, she stayed for quite some time talking with students, faculty, staff, and members of  the community.

The 19 recently donated works were on display at the reception.  In November, in the Andruss Library, these 19 works will be on view again for all to see and appreciate.

  1. I’m upset I missed this! I would have loved to have been there, but it sounds like it was fun. It’s really cool that she donated so many of her own pieces and I’m glad they’ll be on display again.
