    Peter Ivy “Positive Space”

    An exhibition by glass artist Peter Ivy will be held at three Arts & Science locations in Tokyo, Kyoto and Fukuoka. “Positive Space” will be unveiled for the first time at this exhibition. We invite you to come and see Ivy’s new series of works, which represent a new and very distinct take on glassware compared to the artist’s existing style.

    In preparation for our special presentation, Ivy said that he made many new and different attempts. “Positive Space” is one result of his great efforts and presents a series of vases born out of his intense research on material and repeated experimentation. Together with “Positive Space,” there will be a lineup of his traditional grey glassware. Please enjoy the contrast of colors. In addition, a new item Ojyu (a Japanese-style stackable bento box) will also be presented.

    The beginning of Spring is the perfect time to introduce Peter Ivy’s colorful new work, and we look forward to welcoming you to enjoy this rare opportunity to view works that are not included in our usual selection at the shops.

    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.

    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.

    PROFILE
    TENTHOUSANDTHINGS was established in 1991 by Ron Anderson and David Rees, self-taught jewelers. TTT meticulously hand crafts modern heirlooms — sculptural forms in silver and gold — inspired by abstract shapes found in nature. Their concept underlies in the idea that jewelry should give a person “value” – a unique energy that comes from each specific piece and translates to the wearer. Arts & Science has introduced their collection through trunk shows and custom events for many seasons.

    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.
