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.

A very contemporary looking shape by Fujihira Yasushi covered in aubergine glaze befitting the season and enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Yuragi. It is 18 cm (7 inches) diameter, 13 cm (5 inches) tall and in excellent condition. The title Yuragi translates to Fluctuation or Wavering, like the undulating rim of this piece.
Fujihira Yasushi was born the son of avant-garde potter Fujihira Shin in Kyoto in 1963. He graduated Kansai University in 1987 before spending a year at the Kyoto Ceramics Research Facility. In 1988 he was first accepted into the Nitten National Art Exhibition, and the following year was awarded at the Kyoten and received Nyusen status at the 10th National Ceramics Exhibition (Nihon Togeiten). In 1990 he was awarded the Mayors prize at the Kyoten, and was first accepted into the Asahi Modern Crafts Fair. 1992 saw his work accepted into the Asahi Togeiten Ceramics Exhibition, and his first Solo exhibition, a game-changer for him. From 1995 he has concentrated on private exhibitions.
