Art for Sake’s Sake Vol.3

Hisako Baba will be presenting a sake tasting event to accompany her pop-up sale of unique handmade ceramic cups. Along with a menu of Otumami (tasty snacks), guests will enjoy 8 varieties of sake, both hot and cold. There will be a special opportunity to experience the varying effects each vessel has on the aroma and texture of the sake.

Hisako Baba was born in Tokyo. She received her B.A. from Joshibi University of Art and Design and continued her studies in New York City.
She currently lives and works as a ceramicist in New York. She has been so interested in sake by nature that she creates a work of sake vessel since 2010.

Jamie Thomas Band

Jamie Thomas had his musical epiphany not at the proverbial crossroads but a schoolyard in Astoria, Queens, where the music of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and others touched his soul and inspired him to play music as well as write songs. He honed his skills as a performer playing New York clubs in a band before striking out on his own, making his bones as a solo act in the ground zero of the American folk movement, Greenwich Village's the Bitter End
