Sept. 25-Dec. 15
Launched by Shiseido Art House in 2015, the “Craft for All of Us” project aims to not only heighten the artistic appreciation of craft objects but also re-introduce and promote their use in daily life.
This second iteration of the exhibition focuses on five younger-generation traditional craftspeople: ceramist Imaizumi Imaemon XIV, lacquer artists Nakajou Iori and Mizuguchi Saki, metalworker Yoshiha Yohei III, and glassworker Adachi Masao.
Highlights include a round crest dish by Imaemon, an incense container by Mizuguchi and a glass lipped bowl by Adachi.
