    Tomoya Arai Exhibition

    Following last year, “AT THE CORNER” welcomes the wood carving artist, Tomoya Arai for his exhibition and sales event.

    Arai is an autodidact in the handling of wood and lacquer. His creative process is full of originality and freedom. While his works such as bowls and spoons feature scars made during the carving process, each piece have a rough yet refined allure. His works are made to serve as “tools” for the everyday life and each piece is unique. During his time away from his creative process, Arai plows the field and enjoys living with what nature offers him. Please do not miss this chance to see his collection.
    The artist is scheduled to be present at the venue on Saturday, March 23rd. We look forward to your visit.

    「I enjoy using my froe to carve wood. The rackety “me” disappears as a serene “me” takes over its place but once the rackety children come the rackety “me” returns, that’s when my wife comes by and remarks: it’s nice to see you guys having such a good time.」 — Tomoya Arai

    Crocodile Leather “Semi-Custom Order”

    “SHOES and THINGS” in Tokyo and “CORNER” in Kyoto will host a pattern-order event featuring items using crocodile leathers. Including new shapes, we bring you a selection of pieces which can be enjoyed throughout your “daily life”.

    At A&S, we work with a Japanese traditional tanner who specializes in reptile leathers. Each leather is created by the tanner with more than 50 processes including tanning, dyeing and finishing which takes about 3 months. For the finishing process, a globally rare process is used to create leathers with softer textures. Being richly oiled to the core, each leather has an allure which deepens with continued use which is characteristic to A&S. Due to the uniqueness of the material itself, there are only about 20 companies worldwide who can handle them. Please come and experience the texture of crocodile leather carefully tanned by skilled artisans over time.

    *Leathers used to make these items are imported in accordance to the Washington Convention. Not limited to leathers, all other parts will be put to use.
    *Ordered items will take about 6 months until they are ready.
