Lacquerware by Tomoyoshi Miyashita

Tomoyoshi Miyashita is involved in all stages of the process of lacquerware creation,
including planting seedlings, collecting the sap from lacquer trees
and of course creating the base containers of fine-grained wood.


This exhibition shows lacquerware that has been created for everyday use
rather than for display and is therefore practical and easy to take care of
but at the same time beautiful and unique.

There will also be small multi-tiered food boxes
that we have prepared for the new year.

Come along and enjoy the exhibition at the Matsuya Ginza Babaghuri shop.

DESIGN TIDE TOKYO 2012

18 sculptures for sitting




In this exhibition, we are showing 18 new designs of wooden stools.
Although, each one is carved out of a solid block of farmed teakwood,
they have been made as light as possible without compromising on their strength.
I have been making carved stools with the same skilled craftsmen in Java for many years.
I thought that this time, some of the complicated designs I asked them
to make might be impossible to realize, but as usual, all of them
have been carved to perfection.

The exhibition will be held from Oct 31st to Nov 6th.

"Young-Jae Lee" exhibition





During the big earthquake last year,
the cabinet that held all my crockery toppled over
and almost everything broke into small shards.

When Yong-Jae Lee heard about this,
she made me several very beautiful bowls to replace the broken ones.
I am using them everyday with great pleasure.

On a recent trip to Germany I asked Yong-Jae
whether she could make more like them for the Babaghuri shop.

The answer is this exhibition of exceptional bowls with thick translucent glazes
in subtle shades of light grays and greens.



Lee Young-Jae has been awarded the Frechener Kulturstiftung award,
which is the greatest prize that artisans can receive in Germany.
Using German clay, she creates a diverse range of pottery with elegant lines
and the characteristic texture and colour of Korean celadon.

Young-Jae strongly believes that her works should be of practical use
and here at Babaghuri, we are pleased to be able to exhibit her unique items
and make them available for our customers.

The artist will be coming to Japan during the exhibition period.

Come and stop by at the Kiyosumi Babaghuri shop between
Oct 4th 2012 to 16th.

GINZA MEKIKI EXHIBITION 2 at Matsuya Ginza

This exhibition is similar to a market, where 49 people specially chosen
by the Japan Design will be selling things that they have discovered or made.
During this event we will be selling 127 Babaghuri stones, 3 wooden boxes
containing 64 shells each and one very special small black Babaghuri stone
with a pattern in relief.

babaghuri small stone



Nothing is more fascinating than nature. It can be full of surprises.
You just have to take the time to look carefully and sometimes very closely.
For example, what at first looked like a lot of dirty gravel in a dry riverbed in India
was hiding incredibly beautiful agate pebbles
of an endless variety of shapes and colours.
I started by looking for stones to make jewellery, enjoying the thrill of discovery
and in the end photographed the most unusual and interesting ones for a book titled
"Babaghuri".

Then again, I found a very small shell during a summer holiday
on a small private island in Thailand.
It was my first experience to see a shell with such an intricate pattern.
During a week with nothing to do but walk on the beach, I found many more of them.
All of these shells had the same design theme consisting of lines and triangles,
but none of them had the same pattern.
What makes these beings decide how to decorate their houses?
J.L.
