'Craft for All of Us II: Shiseido's Philosophy Making Beauty Part of Everyday Life'

SHISEIDO ART HOUSE

by Yukari Tanaka

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.
