Modern Japanese Design at Manchester Art Gallery

One exhibition I have been displaying my collection in at Manchester Art Gallery has now extended its display period until 23rd April 2017. You can find my work also in their gallery shop and I've recently sent more new pieces for the shop.


 - Modern Japanese Design -

The exhibition, located in the refurbished 19th century former Athenaeum theatre space, includes works from thirty two designers with over one hundred pieces on display. It shows how respect for nature and natural forces and the innovative use of materials and revolutionary techniques have influenced Japanese design. The display also reveals the importance of philosophical and spiritual ideas derived from Buddhism that have influenced the aesthetic and conceptual direction of Japanese design through the approaches of minimalism, deconstruction, and wabi sabi.
