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

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. (Yukari Tanaka)
