THE ART OF PEARLS-Unprecedented design by Eiji Uemura
The Nippon Gallery (at The Nippon Club) will host an exhibition titled “THE ART OF PEALS-Unprecedented design by Eiji Uemura”
Eiji Uemura is the 3rd generation successor of Uemura Cultured Pearls. Starting with a popular pearl necklace, Eiji’s natural sensibility and fire led to the innovation of unique pearl jewelry as wearable art.
The novel nature of Eiji’s concepts includes newly designed pearls with traditional Makie (Japanese Lacquer sprinkled with gold and silver powder), Kiriko (faceted), and a combination of pearls with Kurochiku (Black Bamboo) as well as rubies or diamonds. He has also challenged himself to produce oversized pearls, uncommon shapes (such as cubes), and more.
Eiji began showing his work overseas including in Korea, France, Hong Kong, Germany, Lithuania, Shanghai, Macao, Malaysia,Taiwan, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, Beijing, Thailand, and New York, and it’s been very well received.
Eiji’s modern vision combined with traditional Japanese art techniques makes his one-of-a-kind pieces extremely attractive.
