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 bottomless green pool by master of Seihakuji Kato Tsubusa enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled simply Wan. A big telltale tear drop reaches down to grasp the table, exquisite. It is 5-1/2 inches (14 cm) diameter and in excellent condition.
Kato Tsubusa was born in the home of Shino, Tajimi city in 1962 and graduated the Municipal Ceramic Research Center in 1979. However, after working some in pottery, he moved on to white porcelain, a leap from which he has never looked back. He established his kiln in 1989 in Tomika city. 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 overseas exhibitions in New York among many others. His work is held in the Brooklyn Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, Muse Tomo, and Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum among others.
