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.

Textured Shigaraki Clay is covered with pale ash glaze and rivulets of cloudy green bidoro, a fine Tokkuri by Sugimoto Sadamitsu enclosed in the original wooden box. It is 4-1/2 inches (11 cm) tall and in fine condition. Sadamitsu was born in Tokyo in 1935. He established his own kiln at 33, receiving the kiln name from his mentor Daitokuji priest Tachibana Oki Roshi. His Zen studies have refined the spiritual side of his work, and all of his wood fired ceramics have a quiet and confident power. He has spent his life in the research of kohiki, Shigaraki Iga and Raku wares, and is more than well known in tea circles for the refined soul of his works.
