Japan’s Blue & White World Seminar
Meet Amy Katoh and let her guide you into Japan’s fascinating world of blue and white. Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, Amy, together with her husband, Yuichi Katoh, has lived in many places all over the world, but mostly here in Tokyo. Here, also, for the past 41 years, she has been the owner of her original shop “Blue & White” in Azabu Juban which helps her share her passion for traditional Japanese blue and white antiques and crafts all hand-made. Amy is the author of four (soon, five) books on Japanese aesthetics, and frequently gives talks on indigo, textiles, Japanese style, and her love of Japan. Here are two of my favourite of Amy’s books. All over the world, a tradition of blue and white ware can be found in many cultures. Come and find out why, to Amy, “Japan does it best!”
