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.

Fujioka Shuhei was born in Ehime, on the Island of Shikoku in 1947. He went to Kyoto where he studied at Ritsumeikan University, graduating in 1970. After a stint at the Aichi Prefectural Ceramics Research Facility, he took up an apprenticeship with Tanimoto Mitsuo before establishing his own kiln in 1975, specializing in Iga ware. In line with his kiln in the mountains of Mie, he does not fight for place in the National Competitions, but relies on the intimate world of private galleries to display his work. That said his work is held in many public and private collections and has been displayed in museums throughout the globe, including the new Orleans Museum of Art.
