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 exquisite Tokkuri sake flask by Tsujimura Shiro enclosed in the original signed wooden box dating circa 2000. The piece proudly displays various hi-iro firing effects on the fleshy feldspar pocked Shigaraki Clay for which he is famous. It is just over 6 inches (16 cm) tall and in excellent condition.
Tsujimura Shiro was born in Nara in 1947, and began his steps into the art world as an oil painter. While living at a Buddhist temple he experienced a profound connection with a Korean Tea Bowl, and began potting. He is highly acclaimed and somewhat reclusive, avoiding the public spectacles often needed to make one in Japan. Yet that has not stopped his fame growing both domestically and abroad.
