Dear friends and Nanten Pottery fans, 

We hope this finds you and your families well during this strange and difficult time. You are likely looking forward to getting outside and to art fairs this season as much as we are. However, not knowing when the COVID-19-induced lockdowns will lift, we are unsure what will happen to art-fair season. Below is all of the information we have at the moment, and it will be updated whenever we learn new information. Scroll down to the specific show to find the most details.


Blessings to you and your family, and we hope to see you happy and healthy this summer!

Hironobu and Elizabeth Nishitateno
