Takashimaya 2009

An exhibition is generally the first place an artist sees their own works as a body. Most of the time we are focussing on individual parts of the process. Setting up the Takashimaya exhibition today was exciting, because most of the work, as you know, only came out of the kiln yesterday!

One of the things I like about the NY Takashimaya Home exhibition is the dining table setting, which really puts the pots in context as functional art.

Mixing the different patterns as a place setting, putting it together with other genre, cuttlery, crystal and laquer ware. It helps the guests to visuallise the work in their own home.

Of course I had to test drive the new coffee mugs with Mika this morning before I delivered the pots, with a nice cup of cappuccino, on our own dining table.


  1. Buongiorno Euan,I came to your blog now. Congratulations from Italy for your good work.
    a presto = to soon.

  2. Hi Euan-san.
    I'm so sorry visited very busy time yesterday.
    But I'm SO HAPPY see your new works and talk with you.
    I am glad to hear " We are change every year,It's good thing. It's growth. Got age,some experience,fell something.... variation is natural thing."
    I wish to express my gratitude to the God for meeting you and your family.

    Have a nice and relax weekend.
    Peace will be with you.
