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 celadon figure of a dragon by Suzukio Osamu enclosed in the original signed wooden box. Very unusual, the box form creature stands on two four flat feet, tail popping up out of the top on one side. A brilliant example of the work of this important Avant-garde artist. It is 4 x 3 x 4 inches (10 x 7 x 9 cm) and in fine condition.
Osamu was, along with Kumakura Junkichi, Hikaru Yamada and Yagi Kazuo, one of the founding members of the influential Sodeisha (Crawling Through Mud Association), a group of revolutionary post war ceramic artists whose influence remains strong today. Works by him are in too many collections to note in this small add, including the Kyoto and Tokyo National Museums of Modern Art, Victoria Albert and New York Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art.
