2016/ project, Installation, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Tokyo

Although the potteries and trading companies of Arita form the core nucleus of the 2016/Arita Porcelain project, in order to truly have an impact on the traditional industries of Japan, substantial support has been forthcoming from the cooperative agreement formed between Saga Prefecture and The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The signing ceremony for this collaboration was held at The Dutch Embassy in Tokyo. Both old and new examples of Arita-ware were exhibited in a space featuring contemporary Dutch design.Photography by Kenta Hasegawa.
