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.

Vibrant red tattoos the pale glaze on these sake cups by Yoshikawa Mitsuru enclosed in the original signed wooden boxes titled Akai-e Takatsuki-gata Hai (Tall-footed Sake Cup with Red Decoration). The taller is 10.5 cm (4 inches) tall, 8 cm (3 inches) diameter and in excellent condition. The wider is 6 cm (2-1/2 inches) tall, 9 cm (3-1/2 inches) diameter and in excellent condition. Together with the sake cups and sake pot, this would be a wonderful service set for two. Anyone wishing to purchase this group will receive a proper discount.
Yoshikawa Mitsuru was born in Kyoto in 1949, graduating the Kyoto Municipal University of Arts advanced studies in ceramics in 1976. He has been exhibited at the Asahi Craft Exhibition, Nihon Togeiten National Ceramics Exhibition, Asahi Togeiten Ceramics Exhibition and his works have been collected by Kyoto City. He has been picked up by many of Japan’s preeminent galleries, including private exhibitions at the prestigious Takashimaya and Kuroda Toen of Tokyo’s Ginza District.
