Summer Vernissage, Onishi Gallery
June 22nd, 5-8pm EDT
Join Onishi Gallery and celebrate the beginning of summer with new Japanese tea bowls and flower vases from Ōhi Chōzaemon Toyasai X. Live music will be performed by Leo Kim on cello playing J.S. Bach’s Suite No.1 in G Major and C. Saint-Saëns's The Swan at 6:30pm.
Ōhi Chōzaemon Toyasai X was the head of the important lineage of Ōhi potters who specialize in tea ceramics, until he was recently succeeded by his son, Ōhi Toshio Chōzaemon XI. He is among the best known of contemporary Japanese ceramicists and received the Order of Cultural Merit from the Emperor of Japan. For a full history of this ware, click here.
