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.

Red burns through the dramatically pin-holed white glaze clinging viciously to the sides of this large Shino Chawan by representative Mino artist Kato Takeshi enclosed in the original signed wooden box. Enigmatic dark iron cuts through the clouds of tinged white, lending a brash sense of the primitive power of fire. It has great Hada, the texture so good it would certainly add flavor to your cup of tea. The chawan is 5 inches (12.5 cm) diameter, 3-1/2 inches (9 cm) tall and of course in excellent condition. Takeshi was born in 1947 and like so many other Shino artists attended the Tajimi Industrial School. He studied under Kobayashi Bunichi, Ohashi Momonosuke and later in Kyoto under Uchida Kunio, opening his own kiln in 1973. Since he has spurned the realm of public competition in favor of the personal world of private exhibitions, including the Shinjuku Odakyu and Isetan galleries among many others.
