HULS Gallery Tokyo will hold a solo exhibition by ceramic artist Nobuyuki Kimura. Born and raised in a pottery family in Gojozaka, Kyoto, Kimura has consistently explored the expression of celadon even before embarking on his independent artistic journey. Driven by a deep admiration for the masterpiece of the Northern Song dynasty, his pursuit of celadon has unfolded in a diverse variety of colors such as Toka (peach blossom), Moegi (vibrant yellow), and Suishoku (jade green).
In recent years, Kimura has also dedicated his efforts to studying Tenmoku. He describes Tenmoku as having a unique sense of familiarity and admiration within his family, and it evokes the imagery of twinkling stars in the night sky. Combining refined glaze techniques honed over the years with the inherent elegance of Kyoto, we invite you to experience the harmonious blend of craftsmanship and sophistication in Kimura’s creations.
