In appreciation of craftsmanship, together in collaboration with Jazushi and 5 celebrated chefs, we will host an exclusive dinner event, which features hand-crafted tableware from Japanese artisans.
Guests can enjoy a 6 course dinner, specially created by each chef and inspired by creative tableware of ceramist Mr. Masahiro Wadayama, and experience a live demonstration by Mr Wadayama himself.
Japanese handcrafts will be on display and available for purchase throughout the evening, to which proceeds will go towards supporting the artisans and their life-long dedication.

He has received prizes at a number of competitions, including the 2012 Kyoto Kogei Biennale, the 22nd japan Ceramic Art Exhibition, and the 6th Gendai Chato (contemporary tea ceramics exhibition).
