      Original Hanging Towel

      The ideology of Arts & Science since its beginning in 2003 is to equally value the clothes that complement people and the daily necessities that enrich everyday life. The Home Collection was born from this concept. At first glance the items can seem very simple, however at A&S the selected materials and development is always committed to detail. Currently, our entire Home collection is available at A&S Daikanyama. This feature reflects on the story of the A&S original towel series and our newly developed navy dye.

      Exhibiton “Sunny & Cloudy” by glass artist Kazumi Tsuji will be held at OVER THE COUNTER from January 21 (Fri) to January 30 (Sun). We introduce various styles of works from “ms.garden,” newly presented at her shop factory zoomer last year. Other series will also be available. We welcome you to come and see a full lineup of Tsuji’s expertise.

      “ms. garden” was born from the artist's desire to create items which lift your heart and mood, while we go through the difficulties of the pandemic. She wanted to portray the closer organic relationship we have to nature now, spending more time at home. This series of glassware depicts plants and butterflies with cuts and enamel on the glass surface with a new milky white glass.
      We wish you to please come and visit our first exhibition held in 2022. We look forward to seeing you there.


      Sunny & Cloudy
      “‘Life has its sunshine and its rain, its days and its nights its peaks and its valleys.’ - This are words from a Snoopy comic strip that I loved to ready in bed when I was little. The saying means, if you are alive, there will be the fun days and hard days. I mean, I've been told this kind of thing many times, and I know it, but in the pandemic I've kind of come back to this very common saying.
      A sudden shift was how the pandemic affected me. I was always looking toward the outer world. At the beginning for a while, I was at a lost in it all, but in the second year I found various discoveries and enjoyments in my days of walking around my home, the workshop, and the fields and paths around my neighborhood. I realized that weeds will grow quickly when left alone, hydrangeas grow taller and taller day to day, and white butterflies that dance amongst the cabbage fields show me a familiar scene every same time of the year. These two years have completely reestablished how human society and I believe has created some change in some good ways. I wrote on the glass the very personal feelings I found and felt in my daily life, through the weather, the plants in the garden and the animals I meet. It was an unfamiliar form of my own production, and will be kept as good record for myself and the life we are living right now. If I know many people can empathize with my current creations, that is more happiness than I imagine for these results of my new series of works.
      It will be sunny, partly cloudy and later on a little rainy today.

      — Kazumi Tsuji

      Fukuoka arrival: Pots from Steve Harrison

      *Reservations are required for this event. Please see below on how to make your reservation.

      New 2021 pots by Steve Harrison have arrived from England. These works will be introduced at Arts & Science Fukuoka from January 7th (Friday) to January 16th (Sunday), 2022. Harrison’s work, which has been introduced in Japan by Arts & Science with great care since its opening in 2003, will be available in the Fukuoka area to see in person for the very first time.

      Steve Harrison's often uses the traditional method of pottery - Salt Glazing. As the salt is sprayed onto the pots while they are firing in the kiln, the chemical reaction between the salt and glaze creates organic patterns on the surfaces. The interesting part of this process is not knowing the final outcome of the pots until the kiln is opened. Steve Harrison has fascinated many people with this technique. While the pots are a classical western style, Steve Harrison’s original characteristics show strongly in this handmade process. Arts & Science has been working with Harrison for 18 years. We continue to receive his very best works several times a year in Japan, and we have always shared a special exhibition of his works every two years. Sometimes, like〈BIG IN JAPAN〉, creative director Sonya Park proposes a unique theme together with Harrison. Please also see our history of publishments we have produced and explore our history of working together. (Steve Harrison’s series of books are available on our A&S ONLINE SELLER

      The new arrival of pots at Fukuoka are mainly works Harrison has created in 2021. All of his pots are marked with the year of production, which represents his identity along with his other hallmark stamps. He has chosen himself his best work available including items such as cups, teapots, and bowls made in salt glaze of various colors and sizes. Although at times Harrison will make special items with a certain theme or concept for Japan, his basic concept is defined by pots that can be enjoyed in your daily lifestyle which do not always cause for a special occasion. We welcome you to take a look at this new collection of pots created especially for Arts & Science. We look forward to your visit.


      Arts & Science collection
      “Familiar forms, like teapots, lidded jars, jugs, bowls and cups stand to remind me of who I am as a potter. I often have adventures where I explore different artistic ideas however, I always return to these utilitarian pots. They remind me that ceremony and special occasions don’t need to be reserved for this kind of work. I feel that they imbue everyday living and enrich the moment. This is more poignant in pandemic times where we need to recognize and celebrate the ordinary because it is difficult to search out the extraordinary.
      This small collection of work for A&S is a true reflection of this idea.

      — Steve Harrison

      TENTHOUSANDTHINGS Trunk Show

      TENTHOUSANDTHINGS is a jewelry brand based in New York. Arts & Science have presented the brand’s jewelry for many seasons. This year as well, we will present the brand’s newest collection. The presentation will begin from December 10th (Friday) at A&S Marunouchi until the beginning of the new year.

      This time, we are presenting works from the “Beads” collection, a classic series created since the early days of the brand, the “Fetched stone” collection that features hand-cut rough stones into a rounded form where you can feel the raw cut of the stones themselves, and the “Sculpture” collection that uses special sculptural techniques. We will also introduce a one-of-a-kind necklace named the “Waterfall,” which is decorated with rare stones inspired by the vision of water overflowing on rocks from a waterfall. In this presentation, you can enjoy the specific production techniques and the vision of TENTHOUSANDTHINGS in its entirety.

      For both designers, Japan is the country they love more than anywhere else.
      “I dreamed of coming to Japan because I was influenced by Japanese culture such as ‘Wabi-Sabi.’ Unfortunately, the current situation refrains us from visiting in person. I am looking forward to meeting Japanese customers at the next opportunity.”
      -designers of TENTHOUSANDTHINGS

      Although they cannot be present to help you in person, TENTHOUSANDTHINGS are wishing for your personal encounter with the brand at this opportunity through Arts & Science.

      William Welstead Trunk Show 2021

      Our annual trunk show for William Welstead will be held this year at Arts & Science Aoyama and Kyoto.

      At this trunk show, we will introduce new jewelry styles with rare diamonds including rings, earrings and necklaces. There is also a new line of special bespoke platinum or gold chains paired with your charm of choice.

      The William Welstead trunk show is now our yearly tradition at Arts & Science. We look forward to your visit.

      For the second year in a row I am unable to get to Japan to visit my friends and clients. I have prepared a small collection of new pieces for Arts and Science. For a long time, I have been trying to find the perfect chain and for this collection I am presenting some handmade platinum and gold chains which can be made to order in different lengths. I like to combine them with unusual diamond briolettes and other pendants. In addition, there are some new diamond rings using coloured old cut diamonds and some beautiful Keshi pearl earrings which come from a marine oyster and form without any human intervention. I hope very much that I will be able to visit Japan next year and very much miss seeing my friends there” — William Welstead

      Exhibition of works by “Kenichi Seki”

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

      An exhibition of works by lacquer artist and wood worker Kenichi Seki will be held at HIN / Arts & Science, Nijodori Kyoto.

      Kenichi Seki's vessels are simple yet powerful, and have a different charm from similar antique wooden vessels. Seki's way of working is not usual in the Wajima location; where the division of labor amongst artist is the mainstream. Instead, the single artist's thoughts are reflected in every corner, such as carving marks, shapes, and the condition of painting, because the work is done by himself from the wood carving to the lacquer. In Seki’s works a technique called "Kurimono” is used, where the item is carved from a single block of wood, and the lacquer is done in a way where you can still enjoy the features of the wooden characteristics and grains. The process is done by keeping the best use of the charms and interesting features of the wood itself.

      This is the first time in two years that HIN will hold a special exhibition for Kenichi Seki since his first solo exhibition held at HIN in 2019. In this exhibition, we will introduce various items including traditional Japanese shapes such as Suhama small plates, Japanese trays, classic containers with lids, as well as display shelves, and wooden cups suitable for everyday use. We look forward to your visit.

      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, 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
