The Essence of Tokoname
Mini-Exhibition Showcasing the works of Seiji Ito & Ban Project
Date: 16th January (Sat) – 30th January (Sat) 2021
At HULS Gallery this January, we are joyful to share with you the charm of Tokoname-ware through the works of Seiji Ito, a well-known ceramic artist from Aichi Prefecture. With the city’s rich history in ceramics and teawares, the artist continues the regional tradition, pursuing the balance between beauty and practicality. Therefore, each piece feels humble and mindful, gentle in looks and touch.
With this collection of various Japanese teawares, explore the heart and soul of Tokoname-ware at our gallery. Selected work from Ban Project will also be showcased together in this exhibit.
