Exhibition “Earthenware Pot & Hollowware”

As the cold winter season approaches, so will the dining scene with everyone surrounding and enjoying a single pot “Nabe” cuisine. Today, so many variations of “Nabe” cuisines are becoming popular, the center piece of the Earthenware pot is gathering attention widely.

In 2009, I was asked to design an IH-compatible Earthenware pot using carbon material as the heat generating source. 4 types of pots were made, one for “Nabe” cuisine, another for rice cooking, a stew pot and one that could be also used for steaming vegetables,  meat and fishes, etc. By using an innovative material as IH stove compatibility for Earthenware pots, regular gas oven tops and electrical oven tops are now usable either way. During this event at Sasayama Gallery KITA’S, table coordinator Kumiko Matsushita set the table table decorations with “Nabe” cuisine settings.
