ASHIYA GALLERY

KH Gallery Ashiya is a museum-like gallery where visitors can indulge in the masterpieces of Hiroko Koshino in tranquility.
Natural light seeping into the powerful space designed by architect Tadao Ando illustrates the contrast between undressed concrete walls and paintings, shifting in pattern from moment to moment.
The lush nature cropped by the large windows serves as a source of inspiration for Koshino Hiroko’s artistic endeavors, rendering the artist to return to this place as her production studio every weekend.
Our gallery is open to the public on a reservation basis, except for Sundays when doors are open to drop-in visitors.

KH Gallery Ashiya will hold the exhibition entitled “Dishes by Hiroko Koshino” to present dishes Koshino created during various encounters. Koshino met with her long-time artist friends in traditional pottery production areas and displayed her unique sense of forms and colors and painting methods. Under the eleventh Ohi Chozaemon, the Ohi pottery maker in Kanazawa, Koshino created a series of dishes cut out and formed from flat clay as if she was making clothes. She also collaborated with Susumu Notomi, the Hagi pottery maker, by drawing colorful line art on his blue dishes called “Aohagi”.
Moreover, Koshino developed her own products, designing the ink painting-based “Sumi-no-Toki” series in collaboration with the ceramic ware manufacturer Nikko Company in 2017. In summer 2018, she decorated the Echizen lacquerware, the traditional industry in Sabae, with gold and silver paints. Through these works, Koshino aims to incorporate art in everyday lives.

This exhibition will feature various dishes along with paintings to showcase Koshino’s free, unconventional spirit. Please enjoy the encounter between Japan’s traditional culture and senses of modernity.

The eleventh Ohi Chozaemon (Toshio Ohi) / Ohi pottery
