"Wasara - Paper Tableware" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Japan has a tradition of craftsmanship backed up by solid technique, as well as a refined culinary culture that values hospitality and a sense of etiquette.
These simple, pure forms and fine workmanship are evident in these warm textures. The details demonstrate a commitment to quality, and the materials evince a relationship to nature by making sound use of limited resources.
This exhibition showcases pieces that capture the living, breathing essence of a certain Japanese sensibility as seen in the immaculate detailing of the non-wood materials that go into these paper tableware items. In a throwaway culture of one-use items, these works speak to higher values of hospitality and durability.
