Event description

Description

Husband and wife ceramicists, Momoko and Tetsuya Otani handcraft their works in a shared pottery studio adjacent to their home in the Shigaraki mountains. Their styles are different – Momoko creating works from iron-rich local clay that has decorative surface texture, while Tetsuya prefers porcelain and a minimal aesthetic. Although there are dichotomies, their pieces are similarly functional for everyday use and combine in perfect harmony at a table setting.

The exhibition expands our selection of Momoko and Tetsuya's collections to include their full range of work for one week only. In addition to their individual collections, we will present collaboration pieces. One such collaboration, between the duo themselves, is a series of plates that are first made by Tetsuya with his signature matte porcelain, then completed by Momoko's dark blue hand painted line drawings.

On Friday, August 18, the Otani couple including their three daughters will be present at the Opening Reception of this exhibition, in which refreshments and specialty Shigaraki sake, brought by the Otanis from Japan, will be served. On August 20, there will be a pour-over drip Coffee Demonstration by Tetsuya Otani from 1-2PM.
