Modern Japanese Ceramics Pottery Contemporary

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.

A magnificent and boldly potted Mashiko dish in the shape of a suribachi (grinding bowl) by Kawajiri Hiroshi enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is covered in rivulets of green glaze adding an extra dimension of texture to the vertical engravings. The piece is 15-1/2 inches (39.5 cm) diameter, 7 inches (17.5 cm) tall and in excellent condition. Hiroshi was born in Hokkaido in 1946, and made his pottery debut under the watchful eye of Hamada Shoji, breaking away from his teacher in 1971 to establish his own kiln in Mashiko. He has since been displayed at the National Traditional Arts and Crafts Exhibition (Nihon Dento Kogei Ten), National Ceramics exhibition (Nihon Togei Ten) as well as any number of private exhibitions both in Japan and abroad (New York).
