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 bold set of six contemporary White Bizen Beer Mugs, each entirely unique with slightly different hada by Kitano Katsuhiko enclosed in the original signed wooden box. Over the pale, sheer clay deposits of ash glaze, goma kasu and hi-iro scorching combine with smoky black staining for a very unique experience. Each cup is roughly 4-1/2 inches (11.5 cm) tall, 3 inches (7.5 cm) diameter and all are in perfect condition.
After graduating Nihon Daigaku (University of Japan) Katsuhiko worked (like many before him including Hamada Shoji and Kawai Kanjiro) at the Kyoto Ceramics Research Facility. After establishing his own atelier, the artist has been displayed at the Nihon Dento Togei Ten (National Traditional Ceramics Exhibition) Nihon Togei Ten (National Ceramics Exhibition) Chunichi Kokusai Togei Ten as well as the Nihon Bijutsu Kogei Ten where he received the Kogei Daisho prize.
