ITO Chiho is also known as an artist of Oribe pottery, which is rare for a woman, and she is very popular in galleries and department stores all over Japan. Her first solo exhibition at PAKUPAKUAN was held last December and was well received.
While increasing demand for her work in the contemporary tea ceremony scene, we will be showing her new works, mainly from her signature series, "KIRAMEKI (glitter)". We look forward to seeing the artist who continues to make new attempts and broaden the range of her expression, and we are excited to see what she can do beyond the horizon.
