Hideki Yamamoto: The Beauty of Sensible Tableware

10:00–18:00 (Closed on Sunday and public holiday)・Jul 01, 2021–Jul 21, 2021・HULS Gallery Tokyo 6-4-10 Akasaka, Minato-ku

Based in Takeo, Saga Prefecture, Hideki Yamamoto finds beauty in simplicity — or in “subtraction,” as the ceramic master prefers to call it. He is best known for his deep black glaze, which took him a long period of trials and errors to perfect. Called kuroyu, the method involves a firing process that allows the texture of the soil to transform. Inspired by nature and Zen philosophy, Yamamoto’s ceramics are easily recognizable by their sophisticated metal-like surface. His plates, vases and tablewares all at once look rustic and gentle — a vessel wrapped in a mysterious charm that echoes his aesthetic of reduction. The bare beauty allows room for food or flower to take center stage, making his works a popular choice for chefs and other artists alike. The exhibition will display a few of Yamamoto’s creations and art pieces that are available for purchase.
