Eiko Tanaka is a woodturner and lacquer artist based in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture. From the preparation of the materials to the finishing of the lacquer painting, she does everything by herself. The beauty of curves created by her advanced wood-turning technique, and the glossy world-view expressed by black-red lacquer give us a lasting impression like a feeling that the darkness of the night is dawning.
In this exhibition, we showcase her lacquer work including sake cups for your evening drink, sake ware for professional-use that can be used in bars and restaurants, and art panels. Please visit the gallery and enjoy the rich expressions of her lacquer work up close.

An online event by Zoom to introduce the artist’s atelier in Kaga is scheduled on the 15th December from 7:00 p.m.
Details will be announced on the gallery website and SNS.
