UPCOMING SHOWS

Thank you for your interest in our upcoming art fairs! As Nishi is accepted into art fairs for the spring, summer, and fall, this page will be updated accordingly. So make sure to check back regularly for new information!

If you wish to receive a postcard invitation to Nishi's art fairs, please send us an email with your mailing address (we send out actual postcards rather than emails). We look forward to hearing from you!

Nishi is busy preparing a wide variety of handmade pottery to display and sell. This includes his unique style of dishes and mugs, western- and Japanese-style teapots, teacups, bowls, platters, vases (including the cute bud vases he quickly becoming famous for), sake pitchers, and cups. Check our Facebook page for pictures of the most recent pieces!
