      MARQUESS “Semi-Custom Order 2021”

      A semi-custom order event for the bespoke shoe brand <MARQUESS> will be held at SHOES and THINGS for one month from October 4th (Mon.) to October 30th (Sat.).

      We also accept semi-custom orders where you can choose from nine individual shoe style, and you may choose the leather/colour of your preference. We include rare options such as crocodile leather, which is not usually available in the lineup. This season, we are introducing a new military boot style called <YORK>, which is included in the seasonal collection as well as an option for a semi-order.

      Our MARQUESS order events are held twice a year seasonally, and this time as well designer Shoji Kawaguchi will be present. Kawaguchi will be at the shop for two days, 10.30 (Sat.) and 31 (Sun.) This is a rare opportunity for visitors to consider a personal order while consulting directly with the designer about not only fit but also foot issues. If you already have a pair of MARQUESS shoes purchased at A&S, we would like you to wear them when visiting the shop. Kawaguchi will let you know the condition of your worn-in shoes and give you his personal advice.

      <YORK> Military Officers Boots
      My British Military Officers Boots reflect the style’s ‘history and dignity.’ A no-waste simple design with military-like functional beauty. While maintaining the style’s orthodox appearance, we were particular about finishing it in a manner that is appropriate for a women’s shoe.
      For this production, we designed a slightly looser wooden pattern than before, giving the boots a comfortable shape with the ankles firmly fixed at the wings. Made from finely embossed French leather, the texture is made to enjoy as well. Unlike its solid appearance, these boots give you a soft feel and lightness when worn.
      I have designed the ‘Military Officers Boots’ with the hopes that it will become a standard shoe for all women.
       ― MARQUESS / Shoji Kawaguchi

      Kenichi Takanaka “Takanaka Kaiju Encyclopedia”

      *Please note that visitors with appointments will be be given priority. Details on how to make reservations are provided below.

      Kenichi Takanaka, who produces various works as a acknowledged painter, calligrapher, and potter, will hold a special exhibition at HIN / Arts & Science in Kyoto and OVER THE COUNTER in Tokyo.

      This special project with Takanaka is an annual event at Arts & Science. This year, in addition to pottery and paintings, books published independently by the artist all under the theme “Takanaka Kaiju Encyclopedia,” will be unveiled for the first time. We invite you to discover the world of Kenichi Takanaka, who immerses himself in studying and pondering classical Oriental literature amidst the harsh but rich environment of the mountains, and who continues to devote himself more and more freely to his creative work, following his passion.

      I am fond of kaiju - monsters. I also like monsters that fight other monsters. And I like monster figures, but only those produced by Marusan and Bullmark in 1966, the year I was born, and the following few years. I don’t find the ones produced after that period to be interesting. When I was a child, I used to play pretend and hold battles among my monster figures in the sandbox in the yard and during bath time, making sounds like “Gao” (“Roar”) and “Dokan” (“Boom”) by myself... When I think about it now, that was everything. The me of fifty years ago, irreplaceable, is this me.  ―Kenichi Takanaka

      Masao Kozumi Exhibition: “Carafes and Vessels”

      *Reservations are required for this event. For details, please see the detailed instructions at the end of the page.

      The exhibition "Carafes and Vessels" by glass artist Masao Kozumi will be held at OVER THE COUNTER in Tokyo and HIN / Arts & Science in Kyoto.
      In this exhibition, we will introduce Kozumi’s new works including carafes and cups especially made for Arts & Science. The entire process, from developing the concepts to creating the final shape, took almost one year, and the works were born through trial and error. With his essential lines of work upfront, we have also commissioned several types of glass that are not usually produced, including a new shade of green glass bottles, Onggis, parfait glasses and classic Japanese wind chimes - all suitable for the summer season.

      We invite you to view Masao Kozumi's glass works and enjoy the unique colors and forms using hand-blown and mold-blown classic techniques dated back to the Edo period.

      What we call a Kansuibin is a lidded carafe; the body is a bottle-shaped jug with a versatile lid that can be used as a cup. In the planning process, I asked myself these questions – “How did the craftsmen see this imported carafe back in the day? What kind of resemblance did it have when it was mentioned in classic writing?” I was blowing the mold while becoming deeply indulged in this nostalgic mist of imagination. I would be happy to see this Kansuibin used today placed near your seat in a living room or by your pillow side as a perfect vessel to quench your thirst while relaxing. ― Masao Kozumi

      『20 mugs and 20 pots for 2020 / Steve Harrison』

      A blind auction of total 40 works by British ceramic artist Steve Harrison was held at the end of last year, “20 mugs and 20 pots for 2020.” We share with you this special selection made during the lockdown and a personal message from Steve, “I was unable to travel to Japan this year; a visit that has become part of my potting journey. As the home has become a place where we live and work in 2020, I had to use my imagination to find inspiration. Without people, pots have no context, only developing greater significance and deeper meaning through constant use. As a way of saying thank you to all my friends in Japan, I have sent over my best pots of this year.”

      A booklet that summarizes these works is now ready to share with you. “20 mugs and 20 pots for 2020” will be on sale at Arts & Science shops from May 14, 2021 (Friday). This is Steve Harrison's third publishment following “Pots” in 2014 and “BIG IN JAPAN” in 2019.

      Kazuto Yoshikawa Exhibition 2021

      *Appointments are required for this event.

      A solo art exhibition by wood artist Kazuto Yoshikawa will be held at OVER THE COUNTER in Tokyo from April 23rd (Friday) to May 9th (Sunday). Kazuto Yoshikawa's world of creation - his representative works such as furniture and objects will be on display.

      The wood used in all of his artworks, including cabinets, dining tables, mirrors and objects, is selected from a unique perspective, focused on the characteristics of the grains. In addition, this exhibition will feature tableware such as spoons, butter knives, plates and bowls, items that will enrich your daily dining table. A dining table itself is available to semi-custom order, where you can choose the size of the top board.

      This is Kazuto Yoshikawa’s first solo exhibition at Arts & Science. This selection of works shows the most unique charms of our biological resource, trees. On April 23rd, May 1st and 9th, the artist himself will be present at the shop to answer questions and consult with you directly.


      Trees have the beautiful potential of ageing.

      Why we may find trees beautiful is that humans know ourselves we will grow old and age the same, in the prime of life.

      The delicate growth rings, knots and decay all represent its history, how the tree lived and survived to this date. I believe they have the power to make the eye of the observer realize the precious moment of life that he is living here and now.

      There was a forest near the house where I lived as a child, and I grew up feeling close to the many lives and deaths that exist in the cycle of seasons. The tree was my playmate and at the same time I watched insects flocked to the sap, birds nested on the branches, and the fresh greens that eventually became humus to feed the life of the forest. On a stormy night, I remember a giant tree made a roaring noise and was so afraid in my futon bed.

      To me a tree is not just a mass of material, but a tree as a living creature with a rough skin and a green aroma. I always wish to capture and reflect the tree’s signs of life and the vivid sensuality in my creations.
       ― Kazuto Yoshikawa

      Sho Bok Si 瀟木子

      We will be presenting an exhibition for Sho Bok Si at HIN in Kyoto and OVER THE COUNTER in Tokyo.

      “Sajiya” is a project that started in 2018 by Atsushi Sakai. Sakai is a master wood craftsman who sponsors the gallery studio under his other artist name, “Sajiya” in Okayama Prefecture. With the meaning of “a person who works wood into fashion,” Sajiya’s concept goes beyond the perspective of making tools for functionality, and each detail of his woodwork is made to move the heart of the person who uses it. Thinned wood from the olive groves in Okayama is mainly used in his work, and each piece is modeled while he communicates with the different expressions and faces of every different type of wood.

      This is Sho Bok Si's second exhibition at Arts & Science, and in addition to the one-of-a-kind items in large and small sizes, size 25 spoons and coffee spoons will be exhibited and available for sale.
