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.

A large white Oni-Hagi tea pot by contemporary potter Shibuya Deishi enclosed in the original signed wooden box. The handle is bundled vine. The glaze crawls to reveal dark iron or bare terracotta in flashes of color beneath. Below is earth-toned Hagi glaze spattered with ash and surmounted by the thick white for which the artist is known. It is roughly 6 inches (16 cm) diameter and in new condition.
Shibuya Deishi has been the head of the Hagi Industrial Ceramics Association for some 20 years now. A pillar in the Hagi community, he has been exhibited at numerous Local and National Expositions, including the National Modern Crafts Exhibition. Oni-Hagi is one style for which he is best known. You may see pieces by this artist under his new retired name as well, as he makes way for his son to take over the business.
