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.

Enigmatic forms in black populate the oil spotted rust-colored body of this voluminous work by Shimizu Yasutaka enclosed in the original signed wooden box displayed at the 35th Nihon Kogei Kai Shinsaku Togei Ten (Japan Crafts Association Exhibition of New Ceramic Works) and published on page 8 of the catalog for that year (2007, catalog included). The vessel is 14-1/2 inches (37 cm) tall, roughly 1 foot (29 cm) diameter and in fine condition.
Yasutaka was born into the pottery household of future Living National Treasure Shimizu Uichi in 1947. Although always involved in pottery, he began his official apprenticeship in the plastic arts under his father’s tutelage after graduating Ryukoku University in 1971. One year later his first piece was accepted in National competition at the Japan Traditional Crafts Exhibition (Nihon Dento Kogeiten). The following year he was awarded the first of many awards at the second Kinki Area Nihon Kogei Kai Exhibition. In 1975 he was accepted into the Nihon Togei Ten (National Ceramics Exhibition). He has a constant following in the world of Private exhibitions, and his work is held by Kyoto Prefecture. Due to size the cost of shipping will be assessed separately from the list price.
