Shinji Terauchi is the fourth-generation head of Riso Porcelain, a renowned Arita ware manufacturer. He has been pursuing the creation of tablewares that accentuate beautiful cuisines by learning from the early Imari style. For this exhibition, he will challenge works using only Izumiyama porcelain stone, which is the origin of Arita porcelain. Please visit HULS Gallery Tokyo and enjoy Terauchi’s new works created by facing the soil of Izumiyama that is now rarely used and its value should be revived.
