Garbed in gentle, soft colors, these “Iro no Utsuwa”(Porcelain with Color) works are light and comfortable to the touch, imparting a natural relaxation. The rhythmic patterns created by the tobikanna technique evoke a lively yet warm dining experience. No two of Nobuhiko Tanaka’s works are identical, so you are sure to find your own happiness among the various materials, colors, shapes, and patterns he uncovers in each piece. Please come to this exhibition in search of a unique joy that’s available nowhere else. In addition to these “Iro no Utsuwa”(Porcelain with Color)works, Tanaka’s new “Araji” works of pottery-like porcelain will also be on display and available for sale. We hope you will come and experience them yourself.
