ESH Gallery

Collect 2019 exhibitor

Established in November 2014, ESH Gallery represents international artists whose work engages with the concept of space and the natural elements. With an emphasis on contemporary ceramics, metalwork, glass and organic materials (such as paper and lacquer), ESH’s artists use traditional techniques, crossing the boundaries between art and design.

Special attention on Japanese aesthetics has been the focus of the majority of the shows held at the gallery since its inception. ESH works with international artists including Takeshi Igawa and Yoshiaki Kojiro, finalist of LOEWE Craft Prize 2017, Natsuki Kurimoto, one of founders of the new contemporary Japanese lacquer movement, and many others whose artworks are exhibited in major museums all over the world.
