Exhibition Venue： HULS Gallery Tokyo （Akasaka, Tokyo）
HULS Gallery Tokyo will hold the second exhibition of handcrafted work by Mr.Shinji Terauchi, the fourth-generation head of Riso Porcelain, a renowned Arita ware manufacturer. He creates tablewares that accentuate beautiful cuisines and is actively collaborating with numerous top chefs internationally.
In this exhibition, we are proud to showcase Mr.Terauchi’s new white and blue porcelain works, formed using a potter’s wheel and hand-painted by the artist himself. The highlight of the collection includes bowl-shaped vessels with rich expressions. The shapes of these vessels stretch wide, rising toward the edges. They are universal in style, suitable for both Japanese and Western dishes, and are easy to incorporate into daily use. During the exhibition, an exclusive table setting by Ms.Yumiko Sato will also be featured. She is a space coordinator whose styling emphasizes the grace of Arita porcelain. We hope you will enjoy the beautiful white and blue porcelain works by Mr.Terauchi.
