Local pottery artisan presents Christmas ceramics exhibition

Animal motifs are a mark of Katsukiya creations.

Rei Katsuki calls it her Christmas gift to the community, a special ceramics exhibition featuring animals, fictitious living things and other things that spawn curiosity.

The Katsukiya: Vessels and objects Exhibition is open through Christmas Day at Garb Domingo in Tsuboya, Naha City.  The Katsuki-ya centers on a world theme where curiosity arises when a traveling carnival comes to a certain location one day, and excitement mounts.

Pottery tableware with gold inlays is a specialty of Katsukiya.

Her exhibition and the spot sale of tableware is made more special because some are treated with gold.  Rei Katsuki is one of Okinawa’s best known ceramic & cloth accessory artists.  A Fukuoka transplant to Okinawa in 1991, she’s joined many exhibitions and craft shows.

Flying elephants and pigs are inspired by a traveling carnival.

The Katsukiya: Vessels and Objects Exhibition is open daily 10 a.m. ~ 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. ~ 7 p.m. each day.
