Press release from Akira Satake:
Gallery Mugen – Akira Satake Ceramics and Yuzu Patisserie – is having a party on Saturday, December 10th, 11am to 5pm
We will feature new work from Akira and festive Yuzu Patisserie sweets to sample and purchase. Here’s a taste of what to expect:
Akira is cooking some Japanese dishes! Enough said!
Fukubukuro, or “Good Fortune Bags.” Fukubukuro is a holiday tradition in Japan — stores offer shopping bags with undisclosed contents for sale, customers take their chances as to what “good fortune” they will discover within. Mugen will offer mystery bags which include selected ceramic works by Akira and treats from Yuzu Patisserie. Only five will be available. First come, first served!
1:00 pm Akira will conduct a tea tasting, featuring a tea flight of his personal recommendations. You’re invited to sample varieties and flavors you’ve never tried before and perhaps discover a new favorite. Dobra Tea teas will be featured.
2:30 pm In house mini concert featuring Akira on banjo and shamisen.
So come on down and help us celebrate — we look forward to seeing you on the 10th!
