The second two-person exhibition will be held in Wako by mother and daughter Kazu Yoneda and Aya Yoneda, ceramic artists living in Ishikawa Prefecture.
Seiko House Ginza Hall will hold the "Kazu Yoneda and Fumi Yoneda Ceramics Exhibition – Forms of the Wild, Forms of Dreams" from November 30th (Thursday) to December 10th (Sunday).
Her mother, Kazu Yoneda, who is a regular member of the Japan Crafts Association, primarily uses black drawings to create motifs of natural flowers and birds on pottery made using a potter's wheel. In addition to his large-scale pots and bowls, this exhibition will also feature personal cups that transform everyday life into heart-pounding moments, as well as portable tea baskets.
His daughter, Aya Yoneda, creates intricate and humorous small objects in rich colors by hand. This time, kaleidoscopes, small boxes, vessels, and tiered decorations filled with dreams, secrets, and imaginary worlds will be exhibited.
“We each create our own works, so a two-person exhibition where we can talk about each other's work is a refreshing and special time.”
"Even though it's the same pottery, I hope you can enjoy the different perspectives."
Please take this opportunity to experience a space where works of completely different styles, yet somehow connected, come together.
