PLACE will showcase the work of Otani Pottery Studio, which was started by Tetsuya and Momoko Otani in Shigaraki, one of the six oldest pottery sites in Japan. The event will feature this duo and their exquisite work as well as heavy hors d’oeuvres by Chef Naoko and music by Toshi Onizuka. We’re sure it will all add up to a magical evening!

About the Dine & Design Series
From May through September, guests enjoy a meal or drinks and find inspiration from some of Oregon’s most architecturally interesting places. These lively fundraiser events hosted by friends of AFO bring together colleagues and design enthusiasts to explore the best of the designed environment. Experiences range from intimate dinners to larger cocktails parties.
These events help AFO support Oregon’s quality of life and create awareness of our designed environments through education, inspiration and engagement. Dine & Design raises money to support the programs of AFO, including our vital Architects in Schools program which serves thousands of elementary students per year around Oregon.
