日本二本道dvd视频Last Wednesday evening we were thrilled to host Yumi Nakamura's first solo exhibition in North America.
We've been in contact for four years and have been patiently waiting for her work to make it's way to us.
日本二本道dvd视频The copper funnels on the top of the shelf are both functional and sculputural with their conical shape.
Yumi-San brought some of her personal pieces to show how the copper will patina with use.
Yumi begins with a flat piece of copper and hand hammers it into shape.
日本二本道dvd视频The white pieces are plated in silver and glazed to achieve the milk-white finish.
日本二本道dvd视频Look closely and you will see the repeated hammer marks that reveal beautiful texture to her work.

Featured above is a silver glazed teapot with rattan handle and plate, along with a nickel and silver spoon.
These hand-hammered silver bowls have a lovely thin handle. They are also footed which gives
日本二本道dvd视频them a floating-like appearance.
Yumi was joined by Satoe Moriya who performed tea ceremonies throughout the night.

Over time her pieces will darken and patina with use.
The exhibition will remain up for another week. Please visit us to see the beautiful work in person!
