Review: Art Fair Tokyo 2013 by Tony Laverick


I recently exhibited at the Art Fair Tokyo at the invitation of Gallery St Ives, Tokyo.



The Art Fair takes place at the impressive Tokyo International Forum building in the centre of Tokyo and features over 140 galleries showing art from all genres and periods making it Japan’s most prestigious art event.


Ceramics has a higher status in Japanese culture and the amount and diversity of ceramic art represented at the Art Fair Tokyo bears testimony to this.


I was obviously honoured to be invited to take part and also to be working with Gallery St Ives which is a highly regarded gallery specialising in British Studio Ceramics in Tokyo.

Koichiro Isaka, Gallery Director, said “When I saw Tony Laverick’s work for the first time a couple of years ago, I was confident that Japanese people would like his pieces. His works were very well received at the Art Fair. I am very pleased and enjoyed working with him”.

I will be taking part in another event in Japan later in 2013. The Hankyu Department Store in Osaka is having an event to introduce British ceramics from 9-15th October. The event will include an exhibition of work by Bernard Leach alongside a selling exhibition of work by myself and 4 other potters from the UK.
