Seiko House Ginza Hall will hold the "Iron Painted Copper Painted Norio Kamiya Pottery Exhibition – Akimitsu Touka" from September 28th (Thursday) to October 9th (Monday).

Tetsu-e (painting with iron) and Dosai (painting with copper). “Tetsu-e bronze painting'' is a difficult technique whose color changes depending on the conditions, but since his student days, Norio Kamiya has been particular about the soil of Mashiko, and has established an easygoing and free-spirited style by making full use of this technique.
The theme of this exhibition, which is Mr. Kamiya's 21st solo exhibition at Wako, is “Shuko Touka'', which is his 21st solo exhibition at Wako, where you can feel the depth of pottery from forming on the potter's wheel to hand-weaving and making tatara. We will exhibit approximately 80 items, including vases, plates, vases, boxes, and tea bowls, with a focus on grapes, which represent the bountiful harvest of autumn, as well as vases, plates, vases, boxes, and tea cups decorated with autumn leaves and grass patterns.
Autumn scenery, sunlight, and the scent of pottery that seems to waft in the light. Please take this opportunity to see the world of ceramics that speaks to all your five senses.
