Dai Ichi Arts, Ltd.

Winter Kogei Collection

Exhibition of Japanese Contemporary Sake and Tea Ceramics
November 22, 2023 – January 4, 2024

The festive winter months at Dai Ichi Arts features a showcase of new ceramic works by 3 artist-craftsmen that transform the ceramic medium into an empathetic mode of self-expression that stems from the heart. Exploring form, function, decroation, and traditions, these artists’ expressions of “Kogei” serve as a vibrant tribute to the joys of form and function in small yet expansive objects.

Kim Hono, Ikenishi Go, and Komago Tetsutarou each bring unique perspectives to the concept of “Kogei,” crafting honest objects from the heart. We warmly invite you with gratitude this festive season to browse ceramic works full of joy.

Our winter showcase shows the debut collections of Ikenishi Go & Komago Tetsutaro in the United States, as well as in the highly anticipated new contemporary utsuwa collection of Kim Hono.
