By Appointment is best. You might get lucky just popping by, but a great deal of the month I am out visiting artists or scouring up new items, so days in the gallery are limited.

An extruded basin in pure white clay and thick pale green by Kato Tsubusa enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Dean. It is 9x7 x 4-1/2 inches (23 x 18 x 11.5 cm) and is in excellent condition.
Kato Tsubusa was born in 1962 in Tajimi city, Gifu, home of the Shino pottery tradition, and graduated from A Ceramic design course in 1979 before taking up work in an industrial kiln until 1983, when he hung his own shingle. After some experience in pottery, he moved on to white porcelain, a leap from which he has never looked back. He has been displayed at the Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art, The Chunichi Kokusai Togei Ten (Chunichi International Ceramics Exhibition) and The Asahi Togei Ten as well as many solo and private exhibitions both domestic and abroad. Work by him is held in the V&A London, Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, Brooklyn Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum, Museum of Modern Art, in ifu, Musee Tomo in Tokyo, and many more. For more see Toh, Volume 85 (Kyoto Shoin, 1993) which is dedicated to him, also Fired with Passion, Contemporary Japanese Ceramics (1996, Lurie, Chang) and Quiet Clarity “Rin” Beauty in Contemporary Ceramics (1996, Shiga Museum of Ceramic Art).
