Soh Yamada -Tea pots-
Date: June 10 - June 15, 2017 (Closed on Monday)
We hold an exhibition of Tea pots by Soh Yamada from June 10, 2017.
Soh Yamada was born in Tokoname, Aichi prefecture in 1979. He was apprenticed to his grand father, Jozan Yamada 3rd, who is a well known master of making tea pots.
I hope you find your favorite tea pots in this exhibition. There will be various tea cups and flower vases too.
On the 3rd floor, we are holding a special exhibition of 'Ko-sometsuke' ; Old blue and white porcelain from China, which have been appreciated and cherished by Japanese.
