Waka Artisans is honoured to announce the opening of Akihiko Ishijima’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong at Waka Artisans on 30th November. The exhibition features Ishijima’s recent ceramic works and will run through 10th December, 2017.
Due to rigorous training under Hagi ceramicist, Kaneta Sanzaemon, Ishijima’s tableware is very much influenced by the Hagi style, some even using the classic ‘Oni Hagi’ crawling glaze. In addition to this, he also uses his wood-fired kiln to create some incredibly striking pieces using an iron glaze, reminiscent of the famous tenmoku ceramics from Kyoto.
However, His most unique works are by far his intricately crafted ‘2D’ works. For these pieces he has won many prestigious awards and participated in many exhibitions throughout Japan and overseas.
To celebrate the opening of our art exhibition, we will be hosting a drinks party starting from 6pm on 30th November. Come to Unit S303 at PMQ and enjoy some bubbly along with some Japanese snacks. The first night of the exhibition will be the best opportunity to see the full range of the incredibly unique works!
