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.
In accordance with the request of local authorities our gallery in Kyoto will be closed from April 1st until further notice.

Pitted thick white glaze tinged with blue, gray, orange and pink and shot through with iron covers this dramatic form by Hayashi Shotaro torn from sandy orange clay enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shino Te-Oke Kaki. It is 30 cm (12 inches) tall and in excellent condition, retaining the original Shifuku wrapping cloth and Shiori card.
Hayashi Shotaro (b. 1947) is one of the biggest names in contemporary Mino ceramics. He first began with a 7 year apprenticeship under his older brother Kotaro, ending when he established his own kiln in 1974. Since then his list of exhibitions and awards has been amazing, including the Nihon Dento Kogei Ten (National Traditional Arts and Crafts Exhibition), Governors Prize and five times winner of Best of Show at the Asahi Togei Ten (Asahi Ceramics Exhibition), and Best of Show at Gifu Prefectural Exhibition.
