TIME & STYLE MIDTOWN
Artist in store: 1st June Monday; 6th June Saturday (tentative)
To mark the reopening of the Tokyo Midtown store after closing of about two months, an exhibit by ceramics artist Nobuhiko Tanaka will be held.
The exhibit will feature the new “Gomashiote” series that complement foods with the simple appearance of thick earthenware, centered on the “Iro no Utsuwa” series and its gently pleasing light hues.
The creations of Mr. Tanaka’s display a high degree of perfection made possible by mastery of technique, yet also offer warmth and enjoyment as dishes made for daily use.
We believe that Mr. Tanaka’s sincere and gentle character, which comes through in these creations, is the reason that many people continue to use them with affection.
It is our pleasure to welcome you back to our store together with these delightful creations.
