日 日 和 器 HIBIWAKI
It has been a Japanese tradition to select seasonal tableware to add to the beauty of food and everyday life.
From February 2017, the HK Fringe Club will present a seasonal theme with a selection of handmade tableware by contemporary Japanese ceramists from different parts of Japan to serve gourmet seasonal delicacies at the Fringe Vault. This will offer you a two-fold enjoyment of food and the delight of the lovely handmade tableware. Selected tableware will be available for purchase.
June 1 to August 31, 2017 will be the second season of the Hibiwaki exhibition, where works of Miss Chiho Itoh from Nagoya and Mr Masahiro Wadayama from Osaka will be on display.
Miss Itoh came from Nagoya, and now lives in Setouchi, Aichi Prefecture. She has learned the Seto traditional firing technique of Oribe and Akazu. Inheriting the classic beauty of Seto weaving, and adding on the traditional patterns in modern “Gold and Silver Glaze”, she has established a unique and elegant style.
Mr Wadayama came from Osaka. After studying abroad, he came back to Japan to rediscover the beauty of Japanese ceramics. He decided to keep an open mind and to learn from errors in his research into the glazes and their changes. He presents kaleidoscope-like pattern and contradicting matt and gloss of one glaze. Colours also bring inspiration to him. His works have won many awards in Japan.
