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.
Bold Japanese Ceramic Dish by Mukunoki Eizo
Please refer to our stock # 1469 when inquiring.
Red on black, a brassy design by Mukunoko Eizo, one of the great artist in the lineage of Kawai Kanjiro, enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Daizara (presentation dish). The audacious pattern instantly grips the viewer, seemingly random up the stem leading to a pyramid pattern on the surface. It is 24 cm (9-1/2 inches) diameter, 17.5 cm (7 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
Born in Shimane in 1942, Mukunoki Eizo graduated the prefectural ceramics research facility before he apprenticed under Kawai Kanjiro in 1958, continuing at his kiln until the masters death in 1966. To show respect and mourning for his sensei, Eizo quit potting for 1 year after this passing. He established his kiln in Toyooka, Hyogo prefecture in 1974 and has since repeatedly exhibited at the Nihon Mingei Exhibition, Nihon Togeiten National Ceramics Exhibition, and the National Traditional Crafts Exhibition, as well as the Nihon Traditional Artist Exhibition. He changed his name to Shunsui in 1996.
