FOOD FOR THOUGHT's popular project "Children's Vessel Exhibition" will be held for the fourth time this year.

1st in 2019. A family with a newborn baby who wanted to buy a work as a memorial. That baby is 4 years old. I'm sure you're eating Morimori rice using that vessel! It has grown into a truly meaningful project that can be close to one person's most important time.

This project started with the wish that " I want you to touch real vessels from a young age."

I want you to feel that eating in your favorite bowl makes your meal more delicious, and I want you to learn that if you don't handle it carefully, it will break.

We believe that people who take good care of their tableware will also eat beautifully, and people who eat beautifully will gather people who eat beautifully, creating a circle of happiness.

We asked 10 popular creators who sympathize with this idea to create their own "vessels for children" . This project has matured over time. This time it will be spectacular!

Not only for babies, but also adult-sized dishes are lined up so that teens can find their favorites by themselves.

It is also wonderful to see junior high and high school students choosing a vessel while saying, "Oh, it's cute."

This year's poster is also in charge of our store staff and dyeing artist Sumire Akasaka.

The theme this time is "Deep Sea" . It's too hot this summer! With that in mind, we decided to use black as the base color to give a feeling of summer and coolness.

“I would be happy if I could get a feeling of exhilaration when I see fireworks,” said Akasaka.

Every time this special exhibition is held, there is a pleasant atmosphere in the store.
I think it's because everyone involved in this exhibition is thinking about their beloved children.
I am very much looking forward to holding such an exhibition again this summer.
This time it will be held at the food for sort Nishiogi store.
The exhibition period is extended from Saturday to Thursday so that everyone with children can visit the store easily.

Of course, children are also very welcome. Strollers and bicycles can be parked.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you from the staff doshin!
