Modern Japanese Ceramics Pottery Contemporary

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.
In accordance with the request of local authorities our gallery in Kyoto will be closed from April 1st until further notice.

An open Tsubo by Living National Treasure Hamada Shoji enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Kaki-yu Nuki-e Kabin. Flashes of pale earth reveal themselves beneath the rich red Kaki glaze. It is 8 inches (20 cm) tall, roughly the same diameter and in fine condition, a quintessential work by this important artist.
Hamada Shoji was born in Tokyo, and enrolled in the Tokyo Technical University at the age of 19. In 1918 he met the important British potter Bernard Leach, and the history of ceramic arts was forever changed. One of the most influential and sought after of all Japanese Ceramic artists. There is no shortage of reading material for those who would like to learn more about this potter.
