The Akio Nukaga and Friends exhibit, which is set to be held at Heath Ceramics' Boiler Room Gallery in San Francisco, California, this weekend until the beginning of August, displays the designer's latest works long with a few of his colleagues. Organically textured, his vessels are utterly gorgeous, which sets the perfect tone for the event.
Shown alongside works from such artists as Hideki Takayama and Motoaki Takahashi, his pieces in the Akio Nukaga and Friends exhibit are all handmade. He reveals, "I love throwing and am always looking for new ideas about form while throwing. This time, I developed some new forms made by combining a cup and two balls. This is my version of the ancient styles from Japan and Korea." The collection is made up of white glazed pitchers, layered vases and pots.
