[Seiko House Ginza Hall (former Wako Hall)] “Natural history with thoughts on the change of time – Kazuo Takiguchi -” will be held from May 25 (Thursday)

Ceramic artist Kazuo Takiguchi will hold his sixth solo exhibition after three years.

At the Seiko House Ginza Hall (formerly Wako Hall), from May 25th (Thursday) to June 4th (Sunday), "Natural history with thoughts on the change of time – Kazuo Takiguchi -" will be held.

We are pleased to announce the 6th solo exhibition of Kazuo Takiguchi, a ceramic artist living in Kyoto.
Mr. Takiguchi, who has won numerous awards such as the Ceramic Society of Japan Award and the Kyoto Prefectural Cultural Award for Merit, pursues his own pottery art with his reliable technique and diverse expressiveness. Approximately 100 adorable works that sensitively capture the changes of the times and incorporate their feelings into ceramics will be gathered together. A group of works inspired by canned food opens the door to a heartwarming and nostalgic world that makes everyone smile.
Please enjoy the familiar 12 zodiac signs, 12 constellations, cow cows, weavers, and the seven gods of good fortune woven together, as well as a natural history made of small pottery at the venue.
