This entrancing vessel is part of the "Contemporary Japanese Crafts" exhibit currently on display at Meadows Museum of Art, Shreveport.

Though the exhibit occupies only one room at Meadows, incalculable stimulation awaits those who enjoy Japanese culture. There's something for everyone, as you can see from the works' categories: 1) Ostentation, 2) Quiet Refinement, 3) Crispness, 4) Fine Detail, 5) Deformation, 6) Flowers & Birds.

Times arts reporter Jennifer Flowers interviewed museum director Diane DuFilho about the 70-item exhibit. "We're hoping to do more international exhibits in the future," she told Flowers as she revealed an upcoming show of photos of Tibet.

Meadows will keep the Japonica through February 20.
