blue glazed ceramics

I'm posting my blue ceramic rat netsuke again to celebrate the opening of an exhibition that also presents beautiful sculpture with deep blue glaze, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston: "Della Robbia: Sculpting with Color in Renaissance Florence." The glaze there is very different, opaque and intense, but also beautiful. The show definitely worth seeing for anyone interested in western art, or ceramics, or beautiful sculpture, on view in Boston (just downstairs from the Japanese galleries) through December 4, and then at the National Gallery of Art in Washington from February 5 - June 4, 2017. I'll paste in a link:
